    is there any easy way of removing extra unneeded contextual menus? some programs install the CM plugin inside the CMI folder within the library, but most don't.

    for example, i installed the drivers for the free after rebate apple printer, and now there's 3 CM items present for almost every single file type. also, photoshop installs 15-20. all the photoshop items are in the droplets folder, which i want to keep, i just don't want them to show up in the contextual menu.

    i did a good bit of searching on MR and on google but i can't seem to find any easy solution. any help would be appreciated. thanks!

    If they're not needed, make an Archive of the items you don't want to appear in the menu and delete (or move) the originals. You may need to restart the Finder after this. Alternatively, you could try this complicated workaround. :)
