Remove File Explorer’s default context menu

Removes shortcut menus from the desktop and File Explorer. Shortcut menus appear when you right-click an item. If you enable this setting menus do not appear when you right-click the desktop or when you right-click the items in File Explorer. This setting does not prevent users from using other methods to issue commands available on the shortcut menus.
