  1. Add Control Panel to the Desktop Right-Click Menu in Vista 

A couple of days ago I noticed a thread on our forum asking how to add Control Panel to the desktop context menu, so I decided to write up the solution for everybody, since it seems like a really useful hack.

Manual Registry Hack

Open up regedit.exe through the start menu search or run box, and then browse down to the following key:


HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell

Once you are there, you’ll want to right-click on “shell” and create a new key called Control Panel.

Under that one, you’ll want to right-click and create a new key called “command”.

Select the “command” key on the left-hand side, and then set the (Default) value on the right-hand side to the following:

rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL

You should immediately see the new item in your context menu, and it should be working. To remove, simply delete the Control Panel key.


Downloadable Registry Hack


Simply download, extract, and double-click on the AddControlPanelToDesktopMenu.reg file to enter the information into the registry. You should immediately see the new item. To remove, use the included remove script.





PREVENT FORCIBLE WINDOWS UPDATEManual Registry Hack: 


Open up regedit.exe through the start menu search box or run dialog, and navigate down to the following key, creating new keys if they don’t exist.



HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU


Create a new 32-bit DWORD value named NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers and give it a value of 1 to prevent automatic reboot while users are logged on. Delete the value to put things back to the way they were.

Downloadable Registry Hack

Just download and extract the registry hack files and double-click on WUNoAutoReboot.reg to disable automatic reboots. The other script will remove the hack.

How To Add Recycle Bin to “My Computer” in Windows 7 or Vista

Have you ever wanted to add the Recycle Bin to your My Computer screen? Yeah, it’s probably not the most common request, but here’s how to do it anyway with a simple registry hack.

Here’s what we’re talking about… if you wanted to do something more useful, you can also add Control Panel to My Computer as well.

To make this tweak, we’ll be doing a quick registry hack, but there’s a downloadable version provided as well.


Manual Registry Tweak to Add Recycle Bin

Open up regedit.exe through the start menu search or run box, and then browse down to the following key:



HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace


Now that you’re there, you’ll need to right-click and create a new key…

Name the key with the following text:

{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}


Now you should be able to hit F5 on your My Computer screen, or close it and re-open
.

 
Downloadable Registry Hack

Rather than deal with manual registry editing, you can simply download the file, extract it, and then either double-click on the AddRecycleBinToMyComputer.reg to add Recycle Bin or RemoveRecycleBinToMyComputer.reg to remove it.
