This setting enables you to hide selected items in the "New" option of the context menu of desktop or Windows Explorer.

Tweak for : Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows 2000, Windows Vista
The context menu appears when you right-click in Windows Explorer or on desktop. There is an option "New", which lets you create various documents, folder and shortcut. You can hide selected items in the "New" option of the context menu of desktop or Windows Explorer.
