Hm, in my case Device manager is before Add/remove programs even though the keys are named just like that in the registry already, so I really have no idea how it works.

Or actually now that I look at it the order seems to be descending, which really makes no sense at all.

Device manager was a direct call
correct it by doing this

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\DevMgr]
@=""
"Icon"="devmgr.dll,-201"
"Position"="Bottom"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\DevMgr\command]
@="control hdwwiz.cpl"

If you change all from "Position"="Bottom" to "Position"="Top" then all is at top of list

EDIT : Weird just notice that they are sorting up

Yeah I tried to name the keys like 01devmgmt, 02eventviewer etc., but the **** things are still sorting up the way they want.

Ouch, that is a bit too complicated for my skills I'm afraid. The key thing seems to be the MUIVerb item though. But do I need to use the subcommands key as well? I am really quite lost in this, although I feel it's no rocket science.

Should it look anything like this? (blind shot really)

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

;My Computer context menu
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_Software\Classes\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell]
 "SubCommands"="Add/Remove Programs;Device Manager"

;Add Event viewer
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_Software\Classes\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Add/Remove Programs]
"MUIVerb"="Add/Remove Programs"
"Icon"="imageres.dll,-161"
"Position"="Top"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_Software\Classes\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Add/Remove Programs\command]
@="control.exe appwiz.cpl"

;Adds Device Manager
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_Software\Classes\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Device Manager]
MUIVerb="Device Manager"
"Icon"="shell32.dll,-13"
"Position"="Top"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_Software\Classes\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Device Manager\command]
@="mmc.exe /s devmgmt.msc"




edit: I just tried it on my hope PC and what the hell... All the stuff was actually added to some weird key called wow6432node! It's getting worse and worse.
(I edited the keys for use on already system of course)

(edit2: Solved! After a bit of hopeless googling, I found this:
On 64-bit Windows the local machine software registry "HKLM\Software" is only supposed to contain registry keys for 64-bit EXEs. 32-bit EXEs store their data in HKLM\Software\Wow3264Node. This storage scheme is enforced by the Windows kernel – when a 32-bit EXE writes to "HKLM\Software" the operations are redirected to "HKLM\Software\Wow3264Node"

... after reading it 3 times I realized it was the **** Total Commander, which I am using all the time. Bloody 32bit application... I feel enlightened.
My previous question still remaisn though :P)

I googled like mad and still no results :( Maybe it's not possible to sort the "root" my computer menu?

Think you better off place them on background like this. http://www.msfn.org/...post__p__894130
Background meaning any white space in any folder, desktop
Those are not 64 or 32 specific

Those keys HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT are mirrored here so can be added there

I guess that is an option. But I would like to avoid it if possible, because I am bloody sure it would cause a mess if users have those items at hand. Noone rclicks on my computer, but there are certain nosy guys who could screw a machine up digging into services and stuff. Unfortunately there are local admin rights set. Don't ask me why, I disagreeed from the first moment I found about it. Basically I want to have them easily available when I am fixing something remotely, because the connection is pretty slow and getting through lots of menus is pain in the behind.

True, most don't do that, last place I worked was an Admin and all others was just users.

So can you think of a way to sort this particular menu? Is the code I pasted wrong?
