Vista : extended list of commands to add to right-click menu
This is a follow up to a previous recipe i posted that explained how to add custom commands to your right-click menu on your desktop.
Basically you will want to open Registry Editor and go to this location: Computer\HKKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\
create a new KEY w/the name you want to see in right-click menu.
then create a new KEYunder it called command and input the command as the data.
These commands have been verified in Vista and should work in XP also.
