Windows 7: context menu item "trash" open

22 Dec 2014   #1

windows 8.1 64 bit dual boot windows 7 64 bits Familial
context menu item "trash" open


I would add "Open Trash" to the context menu. I can not find the command to put in the registry.
I put the icon and the name "Trash". it appears with "right click".
But the value 'command'? I can not find.
a big thank you for your help.

If you like, edit the .reg file in the tutorial below to help modify your context menu with it.
