How Add Control Panel to the Desktop Right-Click Menu : Hack

The steps given below will add Control Panel to your Desktop Right Click Menu.

Once you select that item, it will immediately open up Control Panel:


You could use the same technique to add any item into the context menu, or you could even use the same location in the registry to remove things like the NVIDIA Control Panel or ATI Control Center from the menu.

Manual Registry Hack
Open up regedit.exe through the start menu search or run box, and then browse down to the following key:
Once you are there, you’ll want to right-click on “shell” and create a new key called Control Panel.


Under that one, you’ll want to right-click and create a new key called “command”.


Select the “command” key on the left-hand side, and then
set the (Default) value on the right-hand side to the following:
rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL
You should immediately see the new item in your context menu, and it should be working. To remove, simply delete the Control Panel key.

Downloadable Registry Hack
Simply download, extract, and double-click on the AddControlPanelToDesktopMenu.reg file to enter the information into the registry. You should immediately see the new item. To remove, use the included remove script.

Are there any other items you would like to see added into the context menu? Tell us in the comments.
