Windows: Expand the Functionality of \’My Computer\’

If you frequently use the My Computer window, then you should expand the functionality to your liking. You can add Administrative Tools, Printers and Fax Devices, Scheduled Tasks, Network Connections, the Recycle Bin, and My Network Places to the window by using this tweak.

To do this, follow the next steps:

To open the Registry Editor, click on the Start button on your taskbar. Then click Run, and type regedit. Click on OK to start the regedit utility.

Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace.

Create a new KEY, and choose one of the values below:

{D20EA4E1-3957-11D2-A40B-0C5020524153} for Administrative Tools
{2227A280-3AEA-1069-A2DE-08002B30309D} for Printers and Fax Devices
{D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF} for Scheduled Tasks
{7007ACC7-3202-11D1-AAD2-00805FC1270E} for Network Connections
{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E} for Recycle Bin
{208D2C60-3AEA-1069-A2D7-08002B30309D} for My Network Places

Reboot and the changes will show up the next time you open the My Computer window.
