Turning off Perforce Windows Explorer Integration

Since I am no longer using Perforce I wanted to turn off the Windows Explorer because somethings I would accidentally select the Perforce option in the right click menu and it would hang for a long time as it tried to reach the Perforce server.

This blog article says that the simplest way to do this is to select Change/Remove Perforce P4Win Components from the Add or Remove Programs Control Panel and then select the Windows Explorer integration for uninstall. When it is done uninstalling a reboot is required.

Another possibly simpler way is to:

  1. right click any folder
  2. choose Perforce > Options
  3. uncheck all check boxes
