I don't use them at all, and I don't think normal users that are not web developers have much use for them either so I have a suggestion:
remove them by default from Edge and add a new option in Edge developer tools settings
so that only people who actually need them be able to enable them.

Yea, that would be useful in cleaning the right click menu & more appealing to the users. That said, devs can enable the option.

@HotCakeX Yes please remove these items by default!
Average users don't know what these buttons do, and if they click them, they'll be calling IT to help because they don't know "what happened to their screen" :)
Even for web developers, I think "View frame source" and "Refresh frame" are often redundant, because they always appear in the menu, regardless of whether the page even has a frame. It would be nice if Edge checked this and only showed these options when needed. Firefox already does this.
I don't know if there are some technical hurdles making it difficult to adapt the right-click menu based on user settings, but if a static menu is desired, at least placing these options under a sub-heading would be somewhat better.

I disagree with removing these items from the right click option. As a website developer we use these very frequently. They are very visible in some form on other web browsers and removing just for edge, will just alienate Edge once again from other browsers. As a regular user (non developers) how often to you right click on a page?

@TheShaunSaw I still do not think that is a good enough reason. By default, right click has only these options [screenshot below]. Anything else, depends what the user has installed as a web app in the browser or depends on what website he/she is on. If anything should be remove is perhaps "Read Aloud" unless right clicking on text.

Instead of removing them completely, it would be better to collapse them into a "Dev Tools" flyout menu, so that people who need them (Web Developers/IT professionals like me) can easily find these tools. The Edge Team can then include even more tools here, and "normal" users will never see them, or have their menus cluttered.
