This time, we will show you the way to get an option to restart Explorer.exe from right click context menu in Windows 7 .
Now, how to get it.
Two parts : part one is creation of a batch file and part two is a Registry key.
The batch file to restart Windows Explorer.exe
Nothing, but to call default Windows action do activate it in the folder where it is. Open Notepad and write the code:
echo KICK STARTER FOR WINDOWS EXPLORER
echo CREATED BY TheCustomizeWindows.com
echo Kicking Explorer . . .
TASKKILL /F /IM explorer.exe
echo Kicking again to start the Explorer . . .
echo Done! Kicked the Explorer rightly to work back
We have told many times, again repeating it: save the file asand do not forget to change the file type from text to All files from drop down menu in Notepad before saving it.
is just a name; we could have name it ; but in that case we have to the rename in next step.
Place it in C partition, again you can place it anywhere, but have to mention in Registry file.
There is no rocket science in the above thing. You can change the red texts as you want.
For God sake, do not change the format and the blue texts. Nothing will work then.
Important: Double click to check whether it is working.
The Registry file:
This will add the functionality to get working from right click context menu.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
The green texts depend on your wish. As we said ago; we could have name it ; then it will be that.
The red text is what you want to see in right click context menu. We could have name it
The pink text is the location of the vbs file; you can change it as well. Frankly, we have not tested in other complicated ways, we have used conventional location.
Save the file asand do not forget to change the file type from text to All files from drop down menu in Notepad before saving it. Name does not matter here at all. You can save as and it will work.
Now, double click the reg file and accept the security warnings and you will see the option in right click context menu when clicked on a folder or any empty place inside folder or Windows 7 desktop.
Add a minus sign before the H starts after the third bracket; liketo all where there is HKEY and save it (with some good name) as reg file and run it. It will break the association; so the option will disappear from right click context menu.
Obviously, you might delete the bat file manually too.
The rar file is password protected, type thecustomizewindows.com as the password.
