Add the System Configuration Utility to the Right-Click Menu of My Computer

Posted September 18, 2006 by Rob Rogers in Windows networking

This registry hack describes adding the System Configuration Utility (MSConfig.exe) to the context menu of My Computer.


1. Open up Notepad, and copy the following:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\msconfig]
@="System Config Utility"

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

2. Save the text file, and rename it to “XP_MSConfig_MyComputer_Context.”

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