This should do the job

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\Windows\shell\5AdminTools]
"MUIVerb"="@%SystemRoot%\\system32\\shell32.dll,-22982"
"Icon"="%SystemRoot%\\System32\\imageres.dll,-114"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\Windows\shell\5AdminTools\command]
@="control admintools"


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\Background\shell\Windows\shell\5AdminTools]
"MUIVerb"="@%SystemRoot%\\system32\\shell32.dll,-22982"
"Icon"="%SystemRoot%\\System32\\imageres.dll,-114"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\Background\shell\Windows\shell\5AdminTools\command]

Thanks coucou, but it's a Desktop background shortcut, and it seems that nice_guy75 is searching a third-party software like ClassicShellSetup.exe or VistaStartMenu_Setup_3_86_freeware.exe to have Classic Start Menu!

Or maybe I'm wrong?

Not start menu mate, I want a registry which can add "Administrative Tools" in the context menu with all the sub directories. I guess Coucou is right as far as understanding my requirement is concerned but the reg he provided is not working for me.

If you want you can try this shorcut on Desktop background, but I will try to search the subcommands for the shorcuts options:


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\Windows]
"MUIVerb"="Windows"
"SubCommands"=""
"Icon"="%SystemRoot%\\System32\\winver.exe"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\Windows\shell]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\Windows\shell\1AdminTools]
"MUIVerb"="@%SystemRoot%\\system32\\shell32.dll,-22982"
"Icon"="%SystemRoot%\\System32\\imageres.dll,-114"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\Windows\shell\1AdminTools\command]
@="control admintools"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\Background\shell\Windows]
"MUIVerb"="Windows"
"SubCommands"=""
"Icon"="%SystemRoot%\\System32\\winver.exe"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\Background\shell\Windows\shell]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\Background\shell\Windows\shell\1AdminTools]
"MUIVerb"="@%SystemRoot%\\system32\\shell32.dll,-22982"
"Icon"="%SystemRoot%\\System32\\imageres.dll,-114"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\Background\shell\Windows\shell\1AdminTools\command]
@="control admintools"

It's needed to change the reg keys and add at first the correct path, like this:


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\AdministrativeTools]
"MUIVerb"="Administrative Tools"

Thanks

The path isn't correct and if you use a tool like TuneUp Utilities or others, you will see that the keys inside:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\AdministrativeTools

will be removed. And no options will be displayed on right click on the Desktop!

Because this reg key needs a command! Take a look inside the Registry!

You can try with the new path I suggest you and you will see that all is really fine!

I guess you are right mate, I just cleaned by registry with tuneup utilities and defragment the registries as well, and guess what the admin tool option was erased. So now I have changed the path as you suggested, I would clean registries after few days and then see how it goes.

Thanks to update the reg file you gave inside your post, like you've done inside Rockers Teams Forum (post # 21):

Many thanks ;)
