Windows 7: Icon Font folder, How do I add inside My Computer Window (Win7)

Icon Font folder, How do I add inside My Computer Window (Win7)

Hi;

I have win 7 ultimate x64 installed in my box. I have a issue, Im triyng with no success via google and registry hacks to inserting the "Font" folder as a shortcut in "My Pc" window.

I can add a recycle bin, control panel and administrative tools with success but not for the Font folder case. I tried this in registry:

"[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace\{93412589-74d4-4e4e-ad0e-e0cb621440fd}]
"

Where "{93412589-74d4-4e4e-ad0e-e0cb621440fd}" is supposed to be the correct ( for win 7 ) the path to Font folder. When I execute the reg file does not appear anything...

If I try to do this by adding a new line to the above code listed:

'@="Fonts"' ( Ignore the simple commas, not double commas)

It not shows it no success. What I am missing in this issue? I got nut no idea what can I do...

Open C:\windows> Drag the Fonts folder up to the Favorites area> You should now have a Fonts shortcut there.
