Windows 7: Right Click Options on "My Computer"

Right Click Options on "My Computer"

A friend brought a laptop over for me to help him install a printer (he's not to computer savvy) where somebody had put on Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit for him and when I right clicked the My computer icon I noticed I had a bunch of windows cmd's that I use quite often, that I don't see on mine at all.

There was:
Command Prompt
Edit Registry
Services
Device Manager
Advanced System Properties
MSConfig

I have Professional 64bit OEM, Is this a feature of Ultimate or some registry tweaking or a tweaking app?

Is there someway I can make mine the same?

Thanks,
Magoo

Those are not features of ultimate. They are either reg edits, or a non Microsoft edition. All of those commands can be added to the right click context menu. There are several good tutorials here to do that.

Hmmm, using nLite you could add those options to the right click menu of Windows XP, I wonder if vLite does the same for Windows 7?

Must be something like that, Because the person who installed the operating system, doesn't even know how to use the registry editor and there is no extra software I can see on the system
