2 Ways to Remove Map Network Drive From Context Menu

Network drives  also known as Network Attached Storage (NAS) – are an invaluable tool for PC users, both for professional and leisure purposes. Mapping a network drive is the process off connecting a network drive to Windows 10, allowing it to view the drive as if it was physically connected to your PC. By default, users can right click on This PC and click on the Map Network Drive or Disconnect Network Drive context menu item to perform that action. However, at some point, you might also want to remove Map Network Drive and Disconnect Network Drive on the This PC context menu in Windows 10.
