    Good idea. Tutorial updated to have a top, middle, and bottom option for the context menu item. :)

    Good one, Shawn! I tweaked mine just a tad so I would not accidentally click it.
    Speaking of accidents, I had to remove the shortcut created from Kari's tutorial from the taskbar because I accidentally clicked it instead of another app I was going for. Lost a document I was working on but it wasn't nothing I couldn't easily recreate.

    Didn't help that I used a blue icon which blended in with all the other blue icons I have

    @Brink.

    Yeah I wasn't happy with that one because I was in the middle of writing an extensive post here

    Speaking of which, do you have any thoughts on it. You can PM me.

    Thanks.

    How could that happen? If you create the shortcut as told in that other tutorial, it requires you to accept UAC prompt. Clicking NO, nothing happens.

    Would depend on your level of UAC.

    No, any other level than having it completely disabled shows the prompt in this case. Disabling UAC is never a good idea, this just another example on a long list of reasons.

    Just addressing the mechanics, Kari, as a possible reason. Not his personal settings. So I don't understand why you say No.

    No was my comment to this:

    It might be that we see differently what a level of UAC means. For me a level can only be selected when UAC is enabled, therefore UAC level has nothing to do with this; UAC prompt is always shown regardless of its level.

    There are no levels to choose when UAC is disabled, which is then completely another story.

    UAC enabled: prompt will be shown regardless the UAC level.
