    Automated Shortcut Creating


    Howdy,

    Right click on Desktop > Personalize > Themes > Desktop Icon Settings > Add This PC...

    This will make a "This PC" shortcut on desktop, which if you right click on, and choose Properties, will open up "System Details Window" rather than just showing a simple Properties window.

    I want to automate the creation of this shortcut by a .reg or a .bat file somehow, anyone can help?
    Please note, just .rar or .bat automation.
    Thanks in advance

    Not sure why you would want to go looking for these files time after time, rather than just using the default settings, but here you go:
    (remember to 'Unblock' the zip folder when you download it)

    Thank you very much Edwin for your valuable help.
    Actually we assemble tens of PCs each week, and I install their Windows (7 or 10) and some basic applications.
    Rather than configuring the settings of Windows and applications, I am creating a number of .reg files to just run and save time on multiple systems!
    Good idea?!

    Okay, I see what you're doing now. Good idea! Sorry for jumping to conclusions.

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel]
    "{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}"=dword:00000000

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\ClassicStartMe nu]
    "{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}"=dword:00000000

    Control Panel :

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel]
