Windows 7 Right Click Background

Dug around through my stuff and came up with these.
You can pratically add anything you like but you have to play with the values to get it right. :)

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

;Adds Add/Remove to right click of MY Computer
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Add/Remove\command]
@="control appwiz.cpl"


MyPC_context.reg
EDIT: Save this and right click it and choose merge. Should be instantantly added to the right click of your My Computer icon.
Edit the file and remove what you don't want with a ; at beginning
;[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Add/Remove\command]
;@="control appwiz.cpl"
BOTH LINES

Use this to restore your My Computer to Original. XP X86
Default x86 Windows XP
Use this to restore your My Computer to Original. Vista SP1 X86
Vista My Computer SP1 default.reg left the Add/Remove in there cause its too handy
Use this to restore your My Computer to Original. Windows 7 X86
Default x86 Windows 7

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Right Click an Icon Find Target very handy Windows 7 has the right click 'Open file location'

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
;Note for the Find Target to work you need a default Open unknown files.
;This adds Open w/Notepad if you don't already have something set. Comment out if you do.

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\open]
@="Open w/Notepad"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\open\command]
@="notepad.exe \"%1\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Find Target...\command]
@="explorer.exe /select, \"%1\""

there is a program called rjhextenstions that will add the following to a right click:
Path to clipboard:
Copies the path of the selected folder or file to the
clipboard.

Shred File(s):
Overwrites and then deletes the selected file or files.
WARNING: Shredded files cannot be recovered.

Rename Files:
The Rename Files extension allows you to quickly and
easily rename multiple files in multiple folders.

Encrypt File:
The Encrypt/Decrypt extension allows you to easily
encrypt and then decrypt any file using a modified
version of the powerful Blowfish encryption algorithm.

Duplicate File(s):
Creates a copy of the selected file or files in the
same directory. The duplicate files will maintain the
properties of the original.

Copy directory list to file:
Creates a file named "dir.txt" in the selected directory
which contains a list of all files, their dates and sizes,
in the selected directory.

Print directory list:
Sends a list of all files, their dates and sizes, in the
selected directory to the default printer.

lol exactly, but the list will get large like a second Start Menu.

diesel_98a I already have most those things except Shred, encrypt without another program. Just a little reg editing.

Stix Nice additions. As I've said you can add anything. I use my Jump2Reg for all my Reg editing. You can save entries with it.
But as much as I'm in there its on Quick Launch :))

How come my computer got renamed after applying the tweaks. I can manually rename it. I'm just curious.



Thanks.

I saw that once but after a reboot or refresh it disappeared without me doing anything. Normally the key you write to change the My Computer name is this

Change name of "My Computer"
yn = "%USERNAME% on %COMPUTERNAME%"
Reg_Write HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, "CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}", "LocalizedString", yn, REG_EXPAND_SZ
    Else
yn = "@%SystemRoot%\system32\SHELL32.dll,-9216"
Reg_Write HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, "CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}", "LocalizedString", yn, REG_EXPAND_SZ
Perhaps too many entries on this key? I'm not sure, I have every one of them thats listed here and mine says MY Computer.

Doesn't work on mine. I've even edited the registry manually and it doesn't make any difference. The only way I have found to change the name is to right click my computer icon>rename and type in the new name. hmm...weird.

Thanks.

Check the entries carefully ljones2
It could be just one of them doing that and be nice to figure out what but I have them all and nothing. Don't remember when I saw that and after doing what. Is strange.

Not going to be there till you add them. Merge the reg as listed or what you'd like to have.

Hey! Maybe I can add my name to the list of MSFN geniuses. Nah, no where near the level some of you are! :rolleyes:

But I did answer my own question: easier (in this case) then I thought. Next question is, how do you find out what value to add for the add-in? How would one know that for Services, it's multi-key and in hex?

Thanks!

Yes I said you can add anything just may have to play with the value.

Next question is, how do you find out what value to add for the add-in?  How would one know that for Services, it's multi-key and in hex?


Take a look at the command for services. Its a Reg_Expand_SZ key which allows commands to be carried out. Thats why its different. Some things are direct access due to their naming and they run as executables and others need something like that because they run with something else. See we're calling mmc first with value of services.msc. Do a find in your Win dir for all .msc, there are a bunch.
%windir%\system32\mmc.exe /s %SystemRoot%\system32\services.msc /s

Another example would be like this
%windir%\hh.exe ms-its:C:\WINDOWS\Help\ntcmds.chm::/ntcmds.htm
Which opens the Command-line reference A-Z. Place that in the RUN dialog and you'll see what it is.

Another which works in a shortcut but not directly in the Right click services. Can be added with the Reg_Expand_SZ and Hex and all. It opens NET Diagnostics
