  1. Thanks,

    Gsar looks more easy, but I couldn't get it to work with search strings with a comma, but that is what I need.

    It doesn't work for a string containing a comma and text, like 0,win. I tried to put it in quotes, but no luck.

    Then I replaced it with ASCII or Hex-Code it just displays one match, but there are much more.

    Does anybody know a solution for that or another tool?

  2. The following commands won't work

    dir %userprofile%\recent\*.*
    del %userprofile%\recent\*.*

    The following error is displayed

    The system cannot find the path specified.

    However when I use

    cd %userprofile%\recent

    it changes to my profile folder and in the subfolder recent where I can use the DEL command

    My profile doesn't contain any special characters, just a dot in the profile name.

    Has someone a solution for this?

  3. Hi there,

    I want to create a cascaded context menu in Windows Explorer (one entry that opens subkeys if you click on it).

    I'm familiar how to create a normal context menu item via the registry (<filetype>\shell\<Task>\command).

    For example I want to open a jpg file with several different programs, lets say with Program A and Program B.

    I can create for each program an entry like jpegfile\shell\ProgA\command but then the entries are below each

    other and not cascaded.

    I know I can use Open with, but that is not what I want. I would like to create my own entries.

    How can I do that.

  4. Thanks, here is the respective registry key

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    ;When taskbar grouping is enabled, this setting will prevent the buttons from collapsing
    ;if you don't have more than 99 windows of the same type opened

  5. Under Start-->Settings-->Taskbar and Start Menu I have Group similiar taskbar buttons enabled.

    However when the taskbar gets to crowded, similiar taskbar buttons will be piled up and

    a number appears.

    Now you have to click the group and then again the correct window.

    Is it possible to stop the buttons from piling up and still have the same buttons grouped?

  6. As Sonic has stated, using the incorrect syntax for the command has caused the problem
    start "" "c:\my prog\prog.exe"

    I have posted here however, not to affirm Sonics advice, more out of intrigue…

    How did you get this to work?

    start C:\"my prog"\prog.exe

    It just works. According to Sonic, it shouldn't work, but it does. I also tried

    start "Test" "c:\my prog\prog.exe"

    That works, too. Just try it yourself.

  7. Thanks, but I can't it get to work. I checked the help and tried this:

    shortcut -s -t D:\Progs\Test\test.exe -n Test -d h:\prog-w2k\system -i D:\Progs\Test\test.exe -x 0 -l test.log

    I put shortcut.exe in c:\temp and execute it from there via a cmd file and get the following error:

    Error: unable to find D:\Progs\Test\test.lnk

    Are there maybe some examples or further documentation?

  8. Hello,

    when I open Administrative Tools --> Services there are two tabs at the bottom

    of the window Extended and Standard. I don't want the Extended tab, just the standard

    view. But whenever I switch to Standard and close Services and reopen it, Extended is

    selected. How can I change that?

  9. Hello,

    Is there a program / script or other method to save specific registry entries to a reg file.

    For example I want to save the following program settings




    and so on.

    Now I have to go to each key and export each of them in a reg file.

    Is there a way to give a program / script the registry entries and save them

    as a reg-file (or multiples)?

  10. Hello,

    how can I create lnk files via script or command?

    Say I want to create a lnk file which points to C:\Prog\Prog.exe.

    Normally I have to do it manually by right clicking on Prog.exe and

    select Create Shortcut.

    1.) Can this be done by a script or command?

    2.) Is it possible to use system variables like %systemdrive& instead of fixed paths?

  11. Hello,

    I want to execute programs from a batch file. Now there are programs

    in folders with spaces. I tried this

    start "c:\my prog\prog.exe"

    but the start command doesn't like ". I also tried to replace the path

    by a variable, but still no luck.

    Has anyone a solution to this?
