BBATES Jun-01-00 02:53 AM
You can create a "cascading" shortcut on the start menu to things like the control panel, printers, etc.

Open Regedit

CTRL-F to find

Find "Control Panel"

On the left side of the 2 pane window you need to right click on the OPEN FOLDER!

Choose "Copy Key Name"

Explore your C: drive to Windows\Start Menu

Create a new folder

Name the folder "Control Panel." After the '.' you need to CTRL-V to paste the Key Name that you copied.

After you pasted the Key Name delete the HKey_Classes... up to the '{'

Press Enter

Your folder name should look somthing like:

Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}

Now you will have a shortcut on the start menu!

Try it out with recycle bin, printers, etc.

Have Fun!
