Changing the right click context menu.
« on: June 25, 2015, 08:17:41 PM »
Let just say first off I love the repair windows all in one I hate having another icon on my desktop It's like my desk everything everywhere. I usually use the program to fix the computer when needed. And i hate having to type in the program name via the start menu or search through the directories.
So with a simple registry tweak i've added it to the right click context menu when i right click on the desktop. And then i looked at it and thought hmmm I like it more hidden out of the way so I made a extended registry string value to it. so now it only shows up when I click Shift+Rightclick
open registry and go to :


you need to right click on shell and create a key called "Repair Windows" (without quotes)

now in the key
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\Repair Windows
Create a new Expandable string value and name it "Icon"
modify the the value data to :
 "C:\Program Files (x86)\\Windows Repair (All in One)\Repair_Windows.exe" (note the location may be different it all depends where you have it installed at)
Next create a new string value in the same key location under:
 HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\Repair Windows
Name it "Position"
you can change the value data to either Top Middle or Bottom (I usually prefer bottom)

Now if you want it to show only when you hit Shift+ right click
Add a new sting value under:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\Repair Windows
Name it "Extended"
And that is it for the hard part time for the easy part  :wink:
right click on the key:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\Repair Windows
And choose new key:
Name it "Command"
Then open the key so you are in
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\Repair Windows\Command
right click on default and modify
and in the value data
C:\Program Files (x86)\\Windows Repair (All in One)\Repair_Windows.exe  (Location may be different depending on where you have program installed)

And that's it no restart necessary  :artist:
