If you need to work on Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs and Device Manager a lot, then you don’t need to travel to Start Menu to go in the control panel, you can just access them at desktop’s right click menu also known as Context Menu.
The above screenie will tell you what this post is going to do.
Note: since the post involves registry tweaking, it is advised to take a backup of the registry before, so that you can undo any changes you don’t like.
What you all need to do is just download the file given below, extract it and run the .reg file. The file will merge the registry keys on its own; however a reboot may be required.
Now you can access Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs and Device Manager at your desktop.
