Very Sorry, it does work. :whistle:

I had renamed it back to My Computer already once, and then named it "wrong", in that situation the tweak didnt work. New VMachine later and it works great, THANKS AGAIN!

The Problem with "My Computer" being renamed is caused by the first section of the "Registry Editor" tweak.

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}]
"LocalizedString"=hex(2):25,55,53,45,52,4e,41,4d,45,25,27,73,20,43,6f,6d,70,75,74,65,72,00

When i removed that section from
;REGEDIT

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}]
"LocalizedString"=hex(2):25,55,53,45,52,4e,41,4d,45,25,27,73,20,43,6f,6d,70,75,74,65,72,00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\regedit]
@="Registry"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\regedit\command]
@="C:\\Windows\\Regedit.exe"

The Problem went away and the link to the editor was still working.

Not sure what that line was meant to do or what other repercussions there might be though. :wacko:

@="My Computer" @ means default value
I checked 2 PC's here that haven't had anything done to them and they both have that reg value. I also freshly installed XP/SP2 on mine and it's present. Maybe diff pc's and different thing's done to them amount to diff stuff happening. who can know for sure

Another one to add to the collection... the ability to launch Tweak UI from right-clicking on My Computer...

;Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

;Adds Tweak UI to right click of My Computer. 
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\tweak]
@="Tweak UI"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\tweak\command]
@="C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\tweakui.exe"

Note the intentional semi-colon infront of the first line, this ensures accidental merging with the registry.

Have fun :thumbup

How do I get this to work? Also, if I do this, will it still change the name of "My Computer"? Thanks.

people do realize that when using the code commands, it messes up reg_expand_sz information...for example, the code isnt hex(2)&#58...just so people know before they start pluggin this into their registry...its supposed to be hex(2) with a colon after it, then the numbers...just not sure if everyone knows this.
When I spotted this little cutie with some sex appeal. I winked at her, she gave me a look like I'm a booger. I thought b***h, I'd rather spend my money on a hooker. Then a bright idea ran across my mind, if I could swipe a manikin I'd have a freak all the time.

Hi..what i need is to add a shortcut to the 'New' menu that appears when you right click the desktop. I need an entry that will create a new mail message. I am using Outlook Express 6 as my mail client. Any idea how to do this? Currently i have created a shortcut on my desktop itself, with a mailto: link. I am unable to add this to the 'New' menu. I am using Windows XP pro.
