As always, backup your registry before editing.

 

1. Open regedit.exe through the Start menu Search or Run box, and scroll down to the following key:

 

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell

 

2. Right-click on the Shell key, and then select New, Key from the menu. Give the new key the name that you want to show up on the Desktop context menu.

 

3. Right-click on the new key, and then select New, Key from the menu. Give this key the name command in lowercase.

 

4. Click on command on the left side, and then double-click on the (Default) key in the right side to edit the string value. Type in the full path to the application that you want to launch and hit Enter.

 

Now when you right-click on the Desktop, the name you chose in Step 2 should be listed in the context menu.
