    In the latest build all my desktop context menu shortcuts no longer work and result in the screen going black and then restarting explorer.

    I was using the personalisation shortcuts provided with Winaero Tweaker as well as other shortcuts to various CP items and none of those are working now.

    I did manage to get some of them working again by using the following method:

    Code:
     [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\Device Manager]
    "ControlPanelName"="Microsoft.DeviceManager"
    "Icon"=hex(2):25,00,53,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,52,00,6f,00,6f,00,74,\
      00,25,00,5c,00,73,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,33,00,32,00,5c,00,64,00,\
      65,00,76,00,6d,00,67,00,72,00,2e,00,64,00,6c,00,6c,00,2c,00,2d,00,32,00,30,\
      00,31,00,00,00
    "Position"="bottom"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\Device Manager\command]
    "DelegateExecute"="{06622D85-6856-4460-8DE1-A81921B41C4B}"
    It seems unless you use DelegateExecute shortcuts will no longer work

    Here is what it used to look like:

    Code:
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\Shell\Device Manager]
    @=hex(2):40,00,25,00,77,00,69,00,6e,00,64,00,69,00,72,00,25,00,5c,00,73,00,79,\
      00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,33,00,32,00,5c,00,64,00,65,00,76,00,6d,00,67,00,\
      72,00,2e,00,64,00,6c,00,6c,00,2c,00,2d,00,34,00,00,00
    "SuppressionPolicy"=dword:4000003c
    "Icon"=hex(2):25,00,53,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,52,00,6f,00,6f,00,74,\
      00,25,00,5c,00,73,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,33,00,32,00,5c,00,64,00,\
      65,00,76,00,6d,00,67,00,72,00,2e,00,64,00,6c,00,6c,00,2c,00,2d,00,32,00,30,\
      00,31,00,00,00
    "Position"="Bottom"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\Shell\Device Manager\command]
    @=hex(2):25,00,77,00,69,00,6e,00,64,00,69,00,72,00,25,00,5c,00,73,00,79,00,73,\
      00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,33,00,32,00,5c,00,6d,00,6d,00,63,00,2e,00,65,00,78,00,\
      65,00,20,00,2f,00,73,00,20,00,25,00,77,00,69,00,6e,00,64,00,69,00,72,00,25,\
      00,5c,00,73,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,33,00,32,00,5c,00,64,00,65,00,\
      76,00,6d,00,67,00,6d,00,74,00,2e,00,6d,00,73,00,63,00,00,00
    Is anyone else using custom context menus having the same problem?

    The one I really want to fix is my regedit shortcut but I cant figure it out, if someone know a fix please let me know.

    Edit: This is what I have managed so far, regedit still no good though.

    Code:

      00,25,00,5c,00,53,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,33,00,32,00,5c,00,69,00,\

    This is Desktop background right-click menu.
    If it working and You need something more, I think, I can help You. If not working, simply delete it from registry.

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\Registry Editor]
    "Icon"="C:\\Windows\\regedit.exe"
    
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\Registry Editor\command]
    @="C:\\Windows\\regedit.exe"

    Please don't post unless you have tested and confirmed it works on the latest build, this is of course how it should work but with the latest build it just makes explorer restart.

    I cant believe I am the only one using custom desktop context menu shortcuts, is there no one else on the latest build either having no problems at all or experiencing the same problems?

    Can I at least get some of you guys to try the registry editor shortcut to see if the problem can be reproduced?

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\Registry Editor]
    "Icon"="C:\\Windows\\regedit.exe"
    
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\Registry Editor\command]
    @="C:\\Windows\\regedit.exe"
