vistaThere are a lot of ways to improve your right-click desktop context menu. Just have a look at this article on how to hack the context menu in Windows Vista and XP to have a pretty good idea of what I am talking about. If you want to further hack the context menu by adding shortcuts to your favorite website, here is a hack easy to apply.

  1. Open your Notepad.
  2. Now, if you want to add website shortcut to desktop context menu using Internet Explorer, just copy and paste the following code:
  3. Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\Web_Talk]
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\Web_Talk\command]
    @=”iexplore www.webtlk.com”

  4. If you are using Firefox, use this other code:
  5. Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\Web_Talk]
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\Web_Talk\command]
    @=”firefox www.webtlk.com”

  6. Save the file as myfavorites.reg and make sure to have the file saved as .reg extension. (Save as type is “All Files”)
  7. Double click the file you just created to merge its content in the registry.
  8. Restart your computer for the change to take effect.

A little tip. If the hack doesn’t work, once you have copied the code in your notepad, delete the quotes (“) and rewrite them. This because you have to make sure that the quotes used are the same of the one your keyboard has got.
