Add Regedit To Right-Click of Menu of My Computer

Posted September 14, 2006 by Rob Rogers in Windows networking

This tech-recipe contains a tweak which will add Regedit to the context menu of My Computer.


Instead of clicking Start, then Run, and typing in Regedit, you can access regedit by simply right-clicking My Computer. Use the steps below to accomplish this:

1. Open up Notepad, and copy the following:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Regedit]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Regedit\command]
@=”regedit.exe”

2. Save the text file, and rename it to “XP_Regedit_MyComputer_Context” (for example).

3. Then merge it into the registry by double-clicking it.
