    Any idea how to enable more then just open from the context menu in the Applications folder?.
    Code:
    %windir%\explorer.exe shell:::{4234d49b-0245-4df3-b780-3893943456e1}

    ? What do you want
    If you want to add "more" to the context menu, you can't, this View in explorer is handled by twinui.dll, not any registry parts


    Here is how implemented it some time ago, as i want my context menu rather clean than filled :p (removed all other pintostartscreen entrys)

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\*\shell\pintostartscreen]
    "MUIVerb"="@shell32.dll,-51201"
    "Description"="@shell32.dll,-51202"
    "Icon"="imageres.dll,-5376"
    "Position"="Bottom"
    "Extended"=""
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\*\shell\pintostartscreen\command]
    "DelegateExecute"="{470C0EBD-5D73-4d58-9CED-E91E22E23282}"

    You can also get version 6.2.9200.16384 of the classic task manager from Windows 8's boot.wim, if you want the "real" Windows 8 version. :p

    Why would anyone want the old task manager back?!?!?! The new task manager is much more advanced than any previous version. Windows has had the same task manager since Windows 95 and Windows 8 finally brought a huge update to the ailing task manager. You can see every thread of every running program that is running as well as many other enhancements such has Hard Drive, RAM, and Network utilization. It practically replaces MSConfig and Resource Manager as well.

    As I remember task manager as it is appeared only from W2k, W95 had nothing, W98+ had something that became task manager.. :)

    Well, it depends on everyone's taste :cheers:

    It's not really about "taste".

    The Windows 8 Taskmanager offers much more functionality, inbuilt Startup application manager is handy too, it even tracks if they are slow or fast (though im using autoruns since xp, awesome tool) and the "simple view" is good enough for the novice user who is only interested in killing applications.

    for me its taste... for everyday use good, simple and reliable task manager does the job.. if I need something more.. I use Process Explorer :biggrin:

    But well, I can't say a lot... last version of W8 I tried was consumer preview(installed on VM) I don't wan't use it as main OS on desktop.. I wanted to install it on my lappy, but I was unable because of NX/PAE requirement.. and W8 won't work on old hw because in W8 DP/RTM NX flag check is implemented into kernel.. I was able to get past 0x00000260 (just swapped few files.. I don't remember which ones now..) but got 0x0000005D just after "installing features" section started.. which means the same :)

    It was in NT4, possibly 3.5.


    The Network tab doesn't work in the Windows 8 boot.wim task manager.
