    Adapting .REG Files.


    I came across these somewhere [sorry I can't remember where or I would credit the owner].

    I know that Icon and Position are optional, but MUIVerb and SubCommands are compulsory.
    Code:
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\AdvancedStartupOptions]"
    MUIVerb"="Advanced Startup Options""
    Icon"="cmd.exe""
    Position"="Bottom"
    
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\AdvancedStartupOptions\command]@="shutdown.exe /r /o /f /t 0"
    Will there be any impact with NOT including the SubCommand?

    Similarly . . .
    Code:
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\TakeOwnership]
    @="Take Ownership"
    "HasLUAShield"=""
    "NoWorkingDirectory"=""
    "NeverDefault"=""
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\TakeOwnership\command]
    @="powershell -windowstyle hidden -command \"Start-Process cmd -ArgumentList '/c takeown /f \\\"%1\\\" && icacls \\\"%1\\\" /grant *S-1-3-4:F /t /c /l & pause' -Verb runAs\""
    "IsolatedCommand"= "powershell -windowstyle hidden -command \"Start-Process cmd -ArgumentList '/c takeown /f \\\"%1\\\" && icacls \\\"%1\\\" /grant *S-1-3-4:F /t /c /l & pause' -Verb runAs\""
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\TakeOwnership]
    @="Take Ownership"
    "HasLUAShield"=""
    "NoWorkingDirectory"=""
    "NeverDefault"=""
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\TakeOwnership\command]
    @="powershell -windowstyle hidden -command \"Start-Process cmd -ArgumentList '/c takeown /f \\\"%1\\\" /r /d y && icacls \\\"%1\\\" /grant *S-1-3-4:F /t /c /l /q & pause' -Verb runAs\""
    "IsolatedCommand"="powershell -windowstyle hidden -command \"Start-Process cmd -ArgumentList '/c takeown /f \\\"%1\\\" /r /d y && icacls \\\"%1\\\" /grant *S-1-3-4:F /t /c /l /q & pause' -Verb runAs\""
    Can you please tell me whether this just gets added to to the Bottom in the Desktop Context Menu or the Folder Context Menu etc?

    Finally . . .
    Code:
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\KillNotResponding]
    I assume that this puts it at the Top of the Desktop Context Menu?
    Is there anyway to adapt it so I could put it at say the Middle or Bottom?

    Thanks in advance.

    I believe but am not sure that no SubCommand is used in my script: Context Menu Option to Concatenate Audio Files

    What I am aiming for is to have ALL the important things in the Context Menu, but I would like to be able to position them exactly where I want to, and have them available in the Desktop, File, Folder etc without using ANY third-party software. I am pretty much there really.

    Thanks in advance.

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\Testing1]
    "Icon"="cmd.exe"
    "Position"="Bottom"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\Testing1\command]
    @="Winver"
    I have just imported the above and see no impact.

    Put the entries in either:

    Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell

    or

    Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell

    If you leave out SubCommands, cascading flyouts won't work.

    I already added this: [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\Testing1]
    The command works.

    My context menu has no "System Properties". I don't know where/what it is.

    It's a custom one...


    Code:
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\ System Properties]
    "Icon"="%windir%\\system32\\systempropertiesperformance.exe"
    "Position"="Bottom"
    "SubCommands"=""
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\ System Properties\shell]
    @="\"C:\\Windows\\System32\\SystemPropertiesPerformance.exe\""
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\ System Properties\shell\001flyout]
    @="Advanced System Properties"
    "Icon"="\"C:\\Windows\\System32\\SystemPropertiesAdvanced.exe\""
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\ System Properties\shell\001flyout\command]

    Another trick with positioning, over and above the default alpha-numerical order, is to add a blank entry to the beginning of the name (Alt255),

    Blank spaces to put the entry further down in the hierarchy...
