    Thumbs up How to add a Website Link at Desktop Context Menu

    This trick is most useful, if you have addicted to a website that you visit frequently but don’t want to set it as Homepage. Using this trick, you can add ant link to your Desktop’s Right Click Context Menu. So, whenever you required to visit that website, simply do a right click and click on thats wbsite's name.


    Using a simple registry hack, it can be done:

    1. Goto Start –> RUN –> Type “ Regedit “ and hit enter
    2. Navigate to the following Key

    “ HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\ “


    3. Right Click on the Shell Directory and click on New –> Key
    4. Rename it as “ TechSurface “
    5. Now create a new key under “ TechSurface “ directory and rename it as “command ”
    6. Under the “command” key, in the Right side pane edit the value of (default) to

    " iexplore www.techsurface.com "




    7. Click on OK , now it will look something like this


    8. Now Close the Registry Editor and right click on desktop and you will notice that TechSurface is already appeared in the context menu. Just click on it will launch TechSurface website instantaneously.
