    On Win 8.1update 3 I use the following as reg.fix to add;Restart Computer,Shutdown Computer,Sounds panel and System panel, to context menu.


    Code:
    
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\Restart Computer]
    "icon"="shell32.dll,-221"
    "Position"="Bottom"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\Shutdown Computer]
    "icon"="shell32.dll,-329"
    "Position"="Bottom"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\System panel]
    "icon"="shell32.dll,-290"
    "Position"="Bottom"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\Sounds panel]
    "icon"="shell32.dll,-277"
    "Position"="Bottom"
    
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\Restart Computer\command]
    @="shutdown.exe -r -t 00 -f"
    
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\Shutdown Computer\command]
    @="shutdown.exe -s -t 00 -f"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\System panel\command]
    @="control /name Microsoft.System"

    The sound panel doesn't work when I click it. I receive the following :
    This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action.Please install a program or,if one is already installed create an association in the Default Program control panel.


    The fix worked fine on Win 7,Win 8 and Win 8.1 !
    How to fix it.Thank you in advance Gents.
