Hello. Nice to meet you. I know this is an old thread, but I wanted to keep my question based on your initial post or instruction. I stumbled upon this thread in my searching for this very issue. THANK YOU for your dedication and work with this issue and your solution!!!
Is there a way for you to quickly make another .reg file as you have made in your first post, but instead of including the Device Manager, go up one step, and instead have the Computer Management window open... (...or replace the "Device Manager" with "Computer Management" instead)??? Why? I will access the Computer Management target point more often AND THEN with just one click, I will can go either to the Device Manager or Disk Management which I often use.
If it is easier for you to just make the .reg file for a download link and post it in your reply than write up the whole time consuming instructions here, that would be great!
Yes, this is for a Windows 7 Professional 64-bit os.
