Shawn, great shortcuts & tutorial. I put the shortcuts on my start, all programs, shortcuts menu.

However, I think it would be great if you could figure out a .reg command to add a menu item like this to the right click computer context menu.

Also would be great to have a shortcut on that context menu that would cause system restore to do a restore and allow the user to select from the available restore points. (I know, kind of lazy since all one has to do is type "system restore" in the start, seach box.)

Shawn,

I just found out something very interesting....

Check out this thread over at CoU regarding the 'default' Task Scheduler for SR.... Calendar of Updates: Windows, Security Updates and Software Help

I just whipped up a tut for making a new TS item that uses your Instant RP Creation script to create a true daily RP. See this post: Calendar of Updates: Windows, Security Updates and Software Help

Cheers!

I got the images, but I think the write up will need a reporting to fit the standards here....

Can't do it tonight, though, 'cause me back is beginning to ache....

Hello Etrifonoves,

I'm guessing that you are wanting to pin this shortcut to the taskbar. If so, to either enable Quick Launch or pin a folder to the taskbar, then place the shortcut in it instead to be used.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
