    Hi Guys,

    I am looking for the regedit for putting a shortcut on the righthand side of the start menu. It is a regedit that is done on Notepad, saved as a .reg file, so it can be merged.

    Thanks in advance.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{2559a1f6-21d7-11d4-bdaf-00c04f60b9f0}]
    @="
    Insert name here"
    "InfoTip"="
    Insert tooltip here"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{2559a1f6-21d7-11d4-bdaf-00c04f60b9f0}\DefaultIcon]
    @="
    Insert path to your icon here, using double backslashes "

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{2559a1f6-21d7-11d4-bdaf-00c04f60b9f0}\Instance\InitPropertyBag]
    "method"="ShellExecute"
    "Command"="
    Insert name here"
    "Param1"="
    Insert path to an executable file, to a folder (remember the double backslashes) or an internet address here"

    An example that will put a shortcut to regedit into the right side of the startmenu:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{2559a1f6-21d7-11d4-bdaf-00c04f60b9f0}]
    @="Registry Editor"
    "InfoTip"="Edit the Registry"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{2559a1f6-21d7-11d4-bdaf-00c04f60b9f0}\DefaultIcon]
    @="C:\\WINDOWS\\regedit.exe,0"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{2559a1f6-21d7-11d4-bdaf-00c04f60b9f0}\Instance\InitPropertyBag]
    "method"="ShellExecute"
    "Command"="Registry Editor"
    "Param1"="C:\\WINDOWS\\regedit.exe"

    dreamliner77 that put a shortcut at the top of the all programs menu, not the RIGHThand-side of the start menu.
