When I right-click on a folder in Windows Explorer then there appear 3 entries:

Play with MusicBee
Queue Next in MusicBee
Queue Last in MusicBee

How can I disable these context menus?

Hmm, with this settings I delete the context menu AND the file associations.

But when I double click on a *.mp3 or *.m3u file then MusicBee should be lauched. Thats my intention

I just want to get rid of the context menus.

Any solution?

From the choices at the link psychoadept provided, I would suggest starting with ShellMenuView, have had good luck with several of the NirSoft free utilities and most are portable (https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/shell_menu_view.html).

Ok, I played around for a while with tools like ShellMenuView and others.

Yes I can temporarily disable Musicbee context menus.
But when I install a new version or under other circumstances MusicBee automatically re-enables these Context menus.

In ShellMenuView some of them cannot even be disabled

These entries are annoying.
Is it really too difficult to add a simple stupid new option to MusicBees configuration to allow disabling context menus FOREVER (and keep *.mp3 associations for double clicking)?

Is there an official feature request email address?
