Every time I am going to search something, I have to search the context menu for like 2-3 secs.
I would be helpful, if it were not that crowded, I would love to remove some items, like:

There is an extension called "Custom Right-Click Menu":
The version in the Chrome is updated, you can add it to Microsoft Edge too:
I found someone who wants what you want at "StackOverFlow" but it looks like this needs programming knowledge:

I tried some Edge policies, disabled Collections/Translate and it got a little better, but not quite done.
Web Capture is disabled, yet it shows. There is still Immersive Reader, Read Aloud and Inspect left.

Do you use more than the typical "Search the web" for searching from the context menu?

Because right click then pressing 'S' on your keyboard is the shortcut key from context menu for search the web when it is available for the item you've selected, so that could be an alternate method for initiating a web search without having to hunt and peck for it.

Yeah, my personalization stops at:

my own default search engine
my own customizations to the privacy options
my own customizations to the tabs I keep open

After that I'm using it as it is.

But I'm also an old-school KB junkie, so I use KB shortcuts whenever I find them to avoid having to use the mouse more than I have to.
