Enhancement to KB00089 - Adding 'New Sticky' to desktop right-click menu Empty Enhancement to KB00089 - Adding 'New Sticky' to desktop right-click menu

The solution proposed in this KB has the major drawback (mentioned in KB's description) that the "New sticky" entry is not only available in right-clic menu on desktop, but also added in right-clic menu of any folder.

If you want to have this feature available only when right-clicking on the desktop, do not create (as proposed) these new keys in
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background
but rather in
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell

You can take the opportunity of this change to add the Stickies icon in this menu.


Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.0

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\Stickies]
@="New Sticky Note"
"Icon"="c:\\program files (x86)\\stickies\\stickies.exe"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\Stickies\command]
@="c:\\program files (x86)\\stickies\\stickies.exe -"

Thanks Laurent - I've updated that KB article with the details of what you've posted here - altogether better than the info I had in the article!
