To add program shortcut in Desktop context menu:

Type desired program title in "Title" textbox which you want to show in Desktop context menu. Then either type the path of its EXE file or click on the browse button and select the program's exe file. You can also select a .ico file to show an icon for it but the icon will only show in Windows 7.

At last click on "Add/Modify" button and it'll immediately add the program shortcut in Desktop context menu.

Go to "Remove Menu" tab and select the program shortcut which you want to delete. At last click on "Remove" button.

  • This is super handy. I've got it to launch Splinter Cell Conviction, Apache Air Assault and a couple of other games are on it when I have them set to the shift menu, and photoshop on the normal menu. This is one heck of a handy tool - especially if you don't particularly want to see too many icons on your desktop! Brilliant job.

    ^^ Thanks. I'm glad you found it useful. :)

  • does it work in xp?

  • VG

    ^^ No.

  • I installed DeskIntegrator on my Win8.1 and everything seemed to go fine. I used it to add a new editor selection to the right-click menu and that seemed to finish fine but the new item is not there when I right-click on a file! Any suggestions?

    ^^ You need to right-click on Desktop.

  • Oh! I missed that point! Thanks, Bill
