Shortcut for Windows 7 System programs
There are some system programs in Windows 7 which unfortunately are well stored for alm. users. Now I have received a tip from a user (Johnny buchholtz), he describes where they can be found and how they work. There is a detailed guide on how you can easily and simply access them via shortcuts from a folder on your desktop. It does require a bit of legwork at first though, but once set up it just runs – see below how it’s done.
1. Create a folder on the desktop like f.ex. can be called “Windows extra”
2. Open your C: drive and find the folder called: C: windowssystem32 and open it. Here you will find a program called “cmd.exe“Makers “cmd.exe“and right click on it, here select “send to desktop create shortcut“Now lies “cmd.exe“created as shortcut on desktop.
3. Mark the shortcut with the command “clip“and move it to the folder“Windows extra“the one you created at the beginning, there is a shortcut to “cmd.exe“stuck on the desktop.
4. Programs such as “msconfig.exe – psr.exe-regedt32-SnippingTool.exe notepad.exe” also found in the folder C: WindowsSystem32. Transfer each one to the folder in the described Way, also create a shortcut to the folders “Temp-Temporary internet files” and put them in the folder to make it easier for yourself to clean up the 2 folders. In Windows 7, the 2 folders lie hidden, this is solved by following this guide Show hidden files and folders in Windows Vista
The address of the folders:
C: UsersUSERNAMEAppDataLocalMicrosoftWindowsTemporary Internet Files
Create if necessary. also a shortcut to the 2 programs below:
C: Windowsregedit.exe (registration database)
C: Windowswrite.exe (Windows write)
Now you can see the final result below.
