    STEP 1: DownloadRegistry Hacker.
    STEP 2: Look for “%windir%\Explorer.exe”.
    STEP 3: “%windir” indicates “Windows” folder in the drive where Windows got installed in your System.
    STEP 4: Go to the Key “Menu -> 215 -> 1033”.
    STEP 5: Look for the line “MENUITEM "", 33333, MFT_STRING, MFS_GRAYED | MFS_DEFAULT”
    STEP 6: Change the “” to “Name you Want”.
    STEP 7: Click on the “Compile Script” Button.
    STEP 8: Save the changes and restart the System, your problem is solved.

    Dear Friend,

    For this you will have to download the registery hacker...

    look for the %windir%\Explorer.exe

    Then Go to the Key Menu -> 215 -> 1033.

    then see the "MENUITEM "",33333,MFT_STRING,MFS_GRAYED|MFS_DEFAULT"

    change the "" to Name you want.

    compile the script .

    And restart the PC then your problem will be solved..



    Thank You!!!

    1. Open "%windir%\System32\Shell32.dll" file in Resource Hacker. Here %windir% means "Windows"folder present in the system drive where Windows is installed in your system. Usually its C: drive in most of the systems.
    Now go to:
    Menu -> 215 -> 1033
    2. Now add following line:
    MENUITEM "xyz", 33333, MFT_STRING, MFS_GRAYED | MFS_DEFAULT
    Just after the:
    215 MENUEX
    LANGUAGE LANG_ENGLISH, SUBLANG_ENGLISH_US
    {
    POPUP "", 0, MFT_STRING, MFS_ENABLED, 0
    {
    3. Replace "xyz" with any string which you want to add such as:
    MENUITEM "!*~.VISHAL.~*!", 33333, MFT_STRING, MFS_GRAYED | MFS_DEFAULT
    4. Click on "Compile Script" button.
    5. Save the file and restart your Windows to see the affect.
    BONUS TIP: You can remove "MFS_GRAYED" or "MFS_DEFAULT" or both to have some different look. "MFS_GRAYED" is used to disable the text, if you'll remove it, your name will look like an enabled item. "MFS_DEFAULT" is used to show the text in Bold, if you'll remove it, your name will be shown as normal text instead of Bold.
