Guys! Did u ever noticed that free space under the Run menuitem in New Windows XP Start Menu? The following tutorial give u the way to use that free space for ur own shortcut, e.g., u can create a shortcut for Windows Media Player in that free space, as I hv done in my tutorial How to use the free space under RUN in New Windows XP Start Menu In the above tutorial the things, which I hv posted in BOLD may be changed for other shortcuts. Like u can change the name to some other if u want! The "Default Icon" is the path of the icon file, which u want to display in the Start menu shortcut. (NOTE: Double slashes r compulsory). Similarly, the "Param1" in "Instance\InitPropertyBag" is the path of the executable file, to which u want to create the shortcut. (Here also the Double slashes r compulsory!).
