This is a cool way of accessing your frequently used apps directly from the desktop without having to reach out its shortcut sitting somewhere in the corner of the start menu or inside your partitions.
Here I will show how to add notepad to the menu but you can add any application shortcut. At the end of this tutorial your desktop right-click menu should look somewhat like this:
STEP 1: Go the following registry key.
STEP 2: Create the menu item key name.
Since we are going to assign a key for Notepad we will name it as such.
STEP 3: Create the command key.
To create the command key that will actually hold the command used to launch the application, Right-click on the new Notepad key, and then choose New \ Key from the menu.
STEP 4: Enter the full path of the application executable.
Copy the full path of the executable file which you want to use.
Select the command key then double click the default key in the right pane to open up the value window. Paste the path as shown.
