Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1
Customizing the "My Computer" context Menu

I searched the forum for these and could not find the topic, so I decided to create it - hopefully there are others out there who find this useful

The following text will add commands to the right click context menu of "my computer", these are registry keys that I have collected and created over time.

there are more that can be added, but I feel these are the most useful. Feel free to add your own if you have them
