    Right-Click to Add to Registry


    Ok, here's what I wanna do. I wanna create a right-click menu option to add a program to the registry. Specifically, I want to add it to HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run. I have installed FileMenu Tools to help me with this. I also know I can go to HKCR\*\shell to add commands. But how would I phrase the command? How would I tell the computer, either through the command line or the powershell, to add a program to that particular section of the registry?

    From the command line you can add values with the REG command. Type REG ADD /? for more details, or see the MS documentation here:

    No no no. I want the right-click menu to give me the option to add a program to a specific part of the registry. You know the part that automatically runs things at startup? That part. Not satisfied with the folder in the Start menu that does that. I want to use the registry.
