  1. Help Customizing This PC, Navigation Pane, and Control Panel


    Good morning.

    I want to customize 64-bit Windows 10 This PC, This PC right-click menu, File Explorer Navigation Pane, and Control Panel by adding custom applets/shortcuts/folders.

    I modified registry files available from @Brink tutorials and uploaded as files to avoid a long post. I would like any critiques. Thank you.

    Add Administrative Tools to ThisPC Right-Click Menu_x64.reg Add_Advanced_User_Accounts_to_Control_Panel_x64.reg Add_User_Folder_to_Navigation_Pane_x64.reg Add_User_Folder_to_ThisPC_x64.reg

    Questions

    1. For 64-bit systems, I add GUIDs to HKCR\CLSID\{GUID} and HKCR\WOW6432Node\CLSID\{GUID} keys, right?

    2. Doing so automatically creates the corresponding keys in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\... and
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ right?

    3. The HKLM\Software\Microsoft\WIndows\CurrentVersion\Explorer keys are for all users and corresponding
    HKCU\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ keys are just for the current user, right?

    Thanks!

    :)
