How to add shorcuts for your Programs inside Control Panel

How to add shorcuts to the Control Panel.

I hope this subject isn't already covered!

When we install some programs and we want to add a shorcut inside the Control Panel, we can use a reg file to add this one.

1) If the CLSID key already exist, you can create a new one to add an shorcut for a program.

Take care do not use the same CLSID, but you can change the last number, like for example

CLSID\{D14ED2E1-C75B-443c-BD7C-FC03B2F08C25}

CLSID\{D14ED2E1-C75B-443c-BD7C-FC03B2F08C26}

2) Choose carefully the path where you set your program to adapt the reg file!

Examples with: "Registry Editor" - "Group Policy Editor" - "Services" - "MSConfig" - "Autoruns" (Sysinternals) - "Process Explorer" (Sysinternals) - "Cpu-z" - "GPU-Z" - "HWMonitor" - " GSpot" ...

Image Shorcuts inside Control Panel

Assigning Control Panel Categories:

http://msdn.microsof...3(v=vs.85).aspx

Registering Control Panel Items:

http://msdn.microsof...5(v=vs.85).aspx

*Edit: To generate an unique GUID, we can use:

1) CreateCLSID.vbs given by maxXPsoft

2) GUIDGen.EXE : http://www.microsoft...&displaylang=en

3) Windows PowerShell : http://msdn.microsof...2(v=vs.80).aspx

Start | All programs | Accesories | Windows PowerShell | Windows PowerShell (x86) (Choose the version you need)

Write: [system.guid]::newguid()

Copy/paste the new GUID with Notepad

Thank you very much myselfitem :thumbup

If the CLSID key already exist, you can create a new one to add an shorcut for a program
I didn't knew that we can a CLSID key arbitrarily. Everyday learning new :hello:

Nice one myslfdiem. want to try a few of them here :hello:

This is a nice little code for a .vbs will generate new GUID. save as createCLSID.vbs and just run it. Copy the code from inputbox and click ok.

I just couldn't stand to download a program nor google desktop addon

createCLSID.vbs

Set TypeLib = CreateObject("Scriptlet.TypeLib")
NewGUID = TypeLib.Guid
strAnswer = InputBox("Custom Generated CLSID:", _
"createguid",(left(NewGUID, len(NewGUID)-2)))
Set TypeLib = Nothing
Wscript.Quit

BTW< your service cmd would not run here but this does

@="C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\mmc.exe C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\services.msc"

@coucou

You can see the reg file for "GSpot270a" at my first post!

Maybe you have another GSpot version?

For this program you can extract the files inside C:\Program Files\GSpot270a or the place you want, BUT ADAPT THE PATH FOR THE REG FILE!

You can also use the createCLSID.vbs and use the CLSID given to create the new reg file!

Each time you use the script, you will have a new CLSID that you can use!

Run the script on your Desktop and save the CLSID!

Example for GSpot270a and using createCLSID.vbs to have a new CLSID: {241D5CE0-2232-4D86-BDF0-4F2F244F2BA1}

Add a shorcut to the Control Panel for GSpot270a:

 
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

; Add "GSpot 270a" to the Control Panel
; Extract the files inside = "C:\Program Files\GSpot270a"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{241D5CE0-2232-4D86-BDF0-4F2F244F2BA1}]
@="GSpot"
"InfoTip"="Codecs Audios et Vidéos..."
"System.ControlPanel.Category"="8"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{241D5CE0-2232-4D86-BDF0-4F2F244F2BA1}\DefaultIcon]
@="C:\\Program Files\\GSpot270a\\GSpot.exe,0"
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{241D5CE0-2232-4D86-BDF0-4F2F244F2BA1}\Shell]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{241D5CE0-2232-4D86-BDF0-4F2F244F2BA1}\Shell\Open]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{241D5CE0-2232-4D86-BDF0-4F2F244F2BA1}\Shell\Open\Command]
@="\"C:\\Program Files\\GSpot270a\\GSpot.exe\""
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{241D5CE0-2232-4D86-BDF0-4F2F244F2BA1}\ShellFolder]
"Attributes"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ControlPanel\NameSpace\{241D5CE0-2232-4D86-BDF0-4F2F244F2BA1}]
@="Add GSpot270a to the Control Panel"

See that the result is the same, only changing the CLSID!

TNX myselfitem for yr patence,

I well understand now. :thumbup

I tjough the maxXPsoft script combined with a prog (Gspot.exe for example) will create all the [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID.. needs. Too much. Anyway, the maxXPsoft script stay very usefull :thumbup

Thanks coucou! :rolleyes:

Yes the createCLSID.vbs is very awesome and useful, but we must create the reg file anyway.

Example for "Autoruns" and "Process EXplorer" or other programs without exe file extension, because we can choose the path where we want set those programs!

The path can be:

%SystemDrive%\Program Files

%SystemDrive%\Program Files (x86)

%SystemDrive%\Windows

%SystemDrive%\Windows\System32

Just adapt the path inside the reg file to launch the program and show the icon inside Control Panel!

Cheers

Hi all,

Shorcuts were well created in the Control Panel :thumbup

What about creating shorcuts (by registry) for a prog in Windows Shell Explorer (Right-click)?

If you want add a right click shortcut for a program ON THE DESKTOP, with a reg file you can make like this.

Example for Cpu-z


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\Background\shell\Cpu-z]
@="Cpu-z"
"Icon"="C:\\Program Files\\CPUID\\cpu-z\\cpuz.exe,-0"
"Position"="Bottom"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\Background\shell\Cpu-z\command]
@="C:\\Program Files\\CPUID\\cpu-z\\cpuz.exe"

Another example I've made for TuneUp Uilities 2011


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


; TuneUp Utilities 2011 Right click on "MY COMPUTER"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\TuneUp Utilities]
@="TuneUp Utilities 2011"
"Icon"="C:\\Program Files\\TuneUp Utilities 2011\\Integrator.exe,-0"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\TuneUp Utilities\Command]
@="C:\\Program Files\\TuneUp Utilities 2011\\Integrator.exe"


; Add right click on the "DESKTOP" to launch TuneUp Utilities

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\Background\shell\TuneUp Utilities]
@="TuneUp Utilities 2011"
"Icon"="C:\\Program Files\\TuneUp Utilities 2011\\Integrator.exe,-0"
"Position"="Bottom"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\Background\shell\TuneUp Utilities\command]
@="C:\\Program Files\\TuneUp Utilities 2011\\Integrator.exe"

TNX myselfitem for the reply but they're not the shell shortcuts I'm looking for.

I'm looking for the shell shortcuts in Windows Explorer like CabMaker3, Reg2Inf, 7Split, ClipName, Unlocker... or any other prog to add...

BTW, since our discussion HERE, I didn't get time to make a complete addons test integration. Right now I noticed that almost all addons were not integrarted. In fact, I'm usinf Win7Toolkit to integrate the addons as last procedure (after 7customie: Langack, Updates and Drivers). Do you integrate yr addons as last procedure too?

Regards

Hi myselfitem,

How you integrate your addons therefore?

Is there another tool to integrate addons?

Is there a command (manual) to integrate addons?

Here bellow the attached image of the shell shortcuts (CabMaker3, Reg2Inf, 7Split, ClipName, Unlocker... ) in Windows Explorer

Regards

French tutorial:

Example for 7zSplit : add a shorcut for right click on files:

7zSplit.reg


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\7zSplit]
@="7ZSplitter"
"Icon"="C:\\Program Files\\7zSplit\\7z.ico"
"Position"="Top"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\7zSplit\command]
@="\"C:\\Program Files\\7zSplit\\7ZSplit.exe\" \"%1\""

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\7zSplit]
"Path"="C:\\Program Files\\7zSplit\\7ZSplit.exe"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\7ZSplit.exe]
@="C:\\Program Files\\7zSplit\\7ZSplit.exe"
"Path"="C:\\Program Files\\7zSplit"

You can also use My 7 Context Menu:

TNX myselfidem for all these infos.

Regarding W7T, I've always used it at very last to add addons.
