Takeownership Shortcut

Hi

I have been trying to get the takeownership shortcut added to my right click menu.

I have downloaded the ZIP file and followed the instructions to merge it into my registry, however the shortcut still doesn't appear in my right-click menu.

Can anyone help if they have had this problem or advise how I can get it to work?

My OS is Windows 7 Professional x64

Thanks

Right click on a FOLDER and see if you see it.

Creating a shortcut without - shortcut written after the original name
as the titel declares, is there any patch or something to make Windows 7 shortcuts not rename theirselves to "application.exe - shortcut" but rename theirselves into just "application.exe"? I find it very annoying having to erase " - shortcut" from the name all the time.
