How to remove items from nautilus context menu

I installed a STUPID application and this STUPID application installed a STUPID item to my nautilus context menu so that whenever I right click any folder or file, I can send it to that STUPID application!!

Anyway, whenever I click that STUPID item, nautilus crashes!! And so, to remove it I did the following:

  1. Navigate to “/usr/share/applications”
  2. Searched for the application-specific file (named ***splugin.desktop) and renamed it to another application using “sudo mv ***splugin.desktop ***splugin.desktop.backup
  3. Killed nautilus “killall nautilus
  4. Started nautilus “nohup nautilus &

And the item is simply gone 🙂

    by the way, I didn't write the name and used "***" instead because it's private for some reasons 🙂
