Hi there,

Is it possible to modify the context menu of My Computer?  More specifically, i want to modify the "Properties" menu option found when you right-click ontoop of the My Computer icon so that when the user selects Properties it will run a certain executable program.  I am new to this so if you could let me know of a program that can do this or the steps i must do within the registry i would really aprpeciate it.

Thanks

aniston, you can modify the context menu, but only to the extent of removing items or making them unavailable. You cannot modify an existing option so that it performs or runs any secondary programs or operations.
