Windows 7: Add Show-Hide Hidden Files in context menu?

Add Show-Hide Hidden Files in context menu?

In the x86 of Windows 7, I could add Show-Hide Hidden Files in the right click menu with few registry entries. And I could show and hide with just one click. It was very simple.

But it didnt work on x64. Where and what should I add to registy to make the same?

Add “Show / Hide Hidden Files” Option in Desktop and Explorer Context Menu under Windows XP, Vista and 7 - Tweaking with Vishal

He creates a VB script to add the context menu option, but I don't like how he uses the F5 key to refresh and I think the menu option should be content aware like the Undo-Redo menu option. Here's my concept and this site explains more about refreshing without the F5 key but I don't know much about scripting.



Tip of the day: Show hidden files with a simple script
