How to add "Turn Aero on and off icon to context menu?

I added Turn Off aero and Turn on Aero to context menu but they don't work. I do this way. But nothing happen.

Quote:
1. Open regedit and goto:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell
2. Right-click on the "Shell" key and select "New -> Key".
3. Give it name Aero ON.
4. Now create another key under "Aero ON" with the name “command” and in right-side pane set value of “Default” to:
Rundll32 dwmApi #102
5. Now repeat steps 2-4 to add "Aero OFF" option, i.e. Right-click on the "Shell" key and select "New -> Key".
6. Give it name Aero OFF.
7. Now create another key under "Aero OFF" with the name “command” and in right-side pane set value of “Default” to:
Rundll32 dwmApi #104
8. Thats it. Now you'll get both "Aero ON" and "Aero OFF" options in Desktop Context Menu.

Hey Killer Bee

I saw your post a week ago and I think I sourced the same instructions (AskVG??).

I tried it out...... and couldn't get it to work either.

I was going to post my failure results but I had an urgent Call of Duty with a few Guinness friends of mine. It consequently slipped my mind........
