Windows 7: Renaming items in the context menu?

Renaming items in the context menu?

Hi Sevenforums!

I recently downloaded a .reg file to add Control Panel, Registery Editor, Software, etc to my right click context menu (I closed the page now, but tons of respect and thanks to the creator!!), however... I'm Danish, and I really want to rename "Control Panel" to "Kontrolpanel", "Registery Editor" to "Registreringseditor", etc. as I want to keep my operating system in my mother tongue.

Is this possible in any way?

Thanks so much!

Undeadish Sorry it did not work for you, I don't do lots of modding or customizing and only navigated to the tool site and had a look. I saw it claimed to have the ability to rename so I thought that you could use that. Your in the right thread to get some expert help so good luck to you
