  • Removing Foxit Windows context menu item

    Installing Foxit reader places a "Convert to PDF in Foxit reader..." item in the right-click menu for some file types. Just about every piece of software I install seems to want to add to this menu, making it unmanageable: I would never use this feature, and it doesn't even work on my machine anyway (tells me the Foxit PDF printer isn't installed, although it is!)). Is there any way to tell Foxit to remove this menu item?

    Hi Rashford,

    There are two optional ways to remove Foxit Windows context menu item:
    1) Uninstall the whole program, then re-install the program and make sure you untick 'Windows shell extension for converting PDF or combining supported files' during the re-installation;
    2) Or try the following command:
    Go to 'Start'->'Run'->input regsvr32 /u "xxx.dll"
    xxx.dll could be ConvertToPDFShellExtension_x64.dll or ConvertToPDFShellExtension_x32.dll; and the directory of the .dll file should be included.
    E.g. regsvr32 /u "D:\Program Files\Foxit Software\Foxit Reader\plugins\ConvertToPDFShellExtension_x86.dll"

    Thank you.
