    Thumbs up Customize MSCONFIG Tools Tab Easily In Vista


    Wow..

    One more cool customization today.This guide will show you how to customize "MSCONFIG" Tools menu with additional applications. All this without the help of third party applications. So, I am going to show you how to edit MSCONFIG Tools menu as follows:

    1. Copy the below code in notepad first.



    Code:
    <MSCONFIGTOOLS>
    <TOOL NAME= "" PATH="" DEFAULT_OPT="/K %windir%\system32\ipconfig.exe" ADV_OPT="/k%windir%\system32\ipconfig.exe /all" Help=""/>
    </MSCONFIGTOOLS>


    2. In the above code, add information to "TOOL NAME","PATH" and "HELP" . For example, if you want to add a tool called "Chess", here is what you need to add.



    3. Now, save this with Mscfgtlc.xml in C:\Windows\System32 folder(replace C with your Vista drive).

    4. Open MSCONFIG by typing "msconfig" (without quotes) in Start Menu Search box and hit enter.

    5. Go to "Tools" tab to see your new application.

    Note: You can add any number of applications here. I hope it also works with XP.
