How to add custom menu to windows Toolbar RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am trying to add a menu to the Windows explorer's toolbar in Windows 7. While searching I came to know that this is possible by adding some keys to registry. So I added the following keys to registry,

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FolderTypes\{5c4f28b5-f869-4e84-8e60-f11db97c5cc7}\TasksItemsSelected]
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FolderTypes\{5c4f28b5-f869-4e84-8e60-f11db97c5cc7}\TasksItemsSelected\0]
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FolderTypes\{5c4f28b5-f869-4e84-8e60-f11db97c5cc7}\TasksItemsSelected\1]
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FolderTypes\{5c4f28b5-f869-4e84-8e60-f11db97c5cc7}\TasksItemsSelected\1\{f42196b5-20e2-4998-b93c-d30adf700421}]
    @=""
    "InfoTip"="InfoTip for MyTool"
    "Title"="MyTool"
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FolderTypes\{5c4f28b5-f869-4e84-8e60-f11db97c5cc7}\TasksItemsSelected\1\{f42196b5-20e2-4998-b93c-d30adf700421}\shell\InvokeTask\command]
    @="cmd.exe \"/c c:\\ProgramData\\MyScripts\\MyTool.bat %*\""

    Where {f42196b5-20e2-4998-b93c-d30adf700421} is guid generated from "uuidgen.exe". But the menu is not added in Windows Explorer's toolbar. Where I am doing mistake ?

    Please help.

    I don't know what you are doing wrong but this is the wrong forum for your question. This forum is dedicated to questions/issues about customizing and programming Microsoft Project, a project management application. I suggest you start with the following forum:
