The 'new' context menu in explorer tends to get cluttered with entries that never get used. The old way to manage it was with Microsoft's Tweak UI application; but that's difficult to install on versions of windows newer than xp. So I made this app as an easy way to disable/enable entries. It disables shellnew entries in the same manner as Tweak UI, so the applications are compatible.
This util doesn't have a way to create new entries, but that's not difficult to do manually. See this excellent Reference on how shellNew entries work to find out how.
Version 4 or better of the .net framework is recommended. Get it from Microsoft.
To Use: Run the app. Uncheck entries you don't want in your new menu. Close the app.
