The text for the entries is configured there, not what those entries do. The reason for the file is to change the text depending on the language, not to change the behavior.

Yes, I understand this. I see that the using of the variables of "StartMenuL10N.ini" is hard coded in "ClassicStartMenuDLL.dll". Because you know the background how to modify the context menu of start button I hoped you can explain how to change this code to work:
Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\Notepad]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\Notepad\command]
@="c:\\windows\\notepad.exe"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\Regedit]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\Regedit\command]
@="c:\\WINDOWS\\REGEDIT.EXE"

So you want to click on the start button, see a menu, and then run an item of that menu?
That's what the start menu is for! Simply add your programs to it.
If you don't care about having a classic start menu, you can customize the classic menu with just Notepad and Regedit (remove all other items), and then set it to open on middle click. Left click will open the Windows start menu, and middle click will open the small menu with 2 programs in it.

No. I want to right click on the start button and have their some individual integrated shortcuts to programs which I often use (notpad, regedit, ZIP program etc.)

I understand you want to right click, but that's not supported. I'm giving you 2 other options - left click and middle click. What you ask is to add a third customizable menu to the start button (you already have 2 - the standard and the classic), which IMO is quite unnecessary.

You are right - "Classic Start Menu" has enough good features.

But I also like the feature to add some links to programs into right click menu of the start button. This is much faster than navigating though the menus of "Classic Start Menu".

My question was just meant so: Is it possible to activate this feature - even if I not use "Classic Start Menu". And I hoped you can solve this problem easily with you excellent background know how of Windows 7 Start Menu internals - even it has nothing to do with "Classic Start Menu".

No, sorry. It is a pretty big deal just to get some code running inside Explorer. Classic Shell requires 2 DLLs and 2 EXEs for the job. That's quite a bit fo work just to change something from middle click to right click.
Also if I make a tool to replace the right-click menu, it will break Classic Shell (how will you open the current menu then?). I am not going to break my own software

Hello,

want to ask what commands would be for:

1. Details pane
2. Preview pane
3. Navigation pane
4. Open folder in new window
5. Delete button which would work like shift+delete
6. Print
7. Burn
8. Play all
9. Slide show
10. New text file

Maybe somewhere exists same/similar commands list? Thanks


4. looks like %windir%\explorer.exe %2 works

Here's how you can do some of these: SourceForge.net: Classic Shell: Topic: Show/Hide Navigation pane button

If you hold down shift while pressing the Delete button you will get #5. Or do something like cmd.exe /C del %1. I haven't tried it, so experiment a little to make it work.

I don't know about the rest. There are probably different solutions depending on how fancy or robust you want it.

What I do wrong?

if I try to build play button:

"C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe" /Play "%L"
or
"%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe" /prefetch:8 /Play "%L"

not working.


if I try to build slide show button:

Executing Control Panel Items (Windows)
in comments found Windows SideShow:

%SystemRoot%\System32\AuxiliaryDisplayCpl.dll,-1

not working.

I want to completely remove command bar and use Classic Shell just first need to build some buttons in Classic Shell which are in command bar. Thanks
