renaming Start Menu options

Recommended Posts


I wish to rename 2 specific links from within the Start Menu for my unattended cd:

Rename My Computer to 'piXel'


Rename (C:) Local Disk to 'piXel'


I wish to rename both of these links unattendedly, how would I go about it?

Thanks for any assistance

Rename "My Computer" unattended.

Run this vbs script from RunOnceEx.

It will be the name you set in your "winnt.sif".

Const MY_COMPUTER = &H11&

Set objNetwork = CreateObject("Wscript.Network")
objComputerName = objNetwork.ComputerName
Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
Set objFolder = objShell.Namespace(MY_COMPUTER)
Set objFolderItem = objFolder.Self
objFolderItem.Name = objComputerName

Rename "Drive(s)" unattended.

Put this "reg" in your regtweaks.

It will also do your icon.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

@="Hoved Drev"

Both found on this site...
