Windows 10 has a lot of new features for designers and creators (hence the name Creators Update) such as Paint 3D. There is a lot going on in that app, and if you want to learn more, check out our Paint 3D reference guide. However, like anything new, you might find it too complex for simple tasks or you might not want to use it at all. Just like with deleting the 3D Objects folder, if you’re not a creator and never use Paint 3D, you can clean up the context menu by removing it.
Remove Edit with Paint 3D
To remove the option for JPG images, hit Windows Key + R on your keyboard to open the Run dialog and type: regedit and click OK or hit Enter.
Then navigate to the following path:
Then right-click on the 3D Edit key and choose Delete.
Keep in mind the above step removes “Edit with Paint 3D” from the context menu for .jpg files. For other image formats, you need to replace the /.jpg/ part of the path with .png or .bmp — whichever file format you want it removed from and delete the 3D Edit key.
For example, in the screenshot below I am deleting it from displaying in the context menu for PNG files.
When you’re finished with each file format, close out of the Registry and the next time you right-click a photo you should no longer see “Edit with Paint 3D” listed in the context menu.
