1. open run box
we need to open the run box first by pressing the keys (windows key+r) to open the registry editor. write in regedit to open registry
2. Backup all registries
you need to backup all registries before starting if something is falt to come back
file>export>export range: all > save your file in your favorite name and wait to be finished
then you can save them in any place
so let’s start the magic 🙂
3. Creating our menu
you must go to this location to start editing the menu Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell
4. Create a new key
to start creating your own menu click on shell folder then new>key you will see New Key#1
as you see the new key#1 down
after that, you can rename the new key as you want or as a program name.
in my case, I will rename it (WhatsApp)
5. Create the command folder
now in the WhatsApp folder make a new key also (new>key) and rename it a command.
6. Getting the target of your app!
now you want to get the target of the app you are working on in my case I’m adding WhatsApp so place your program shortcut on the desktop and click properties and get its target then copy it
7. Modify the command folder
after coping the app target from shortcut go to command folder then at (default) press modify and paste the target link in value data then press ok.
8. Getting the program icon
to get the program icon in your program folder in my case WhatsApp you will make a new>string value you will get new value#1
rename it an icon
9. Adding target to icon
now you need to copy the target of the app again modify the icon and paste the location into the value data.
10. Save the file to export
