    Problem with renaming the button on the Command bar of Windows Explorer

    I tried to change the name of one of the button of the command bar of Windows Explorer. T is not changing. I tried this in my Windows 7 System. I need to rename it. I will be thankful, if anyone helps me in solving the problem.

    STEP 1: Click Start and type “run” in search box. Hit Enter.
    STEP 2: Type “regedit” and hit Enter.
    STEP 3: Go to the location “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Cur rentVersion\Explorer\CommandStore\shell”.
    STEP 4: Look for the button which you want to rename under “shell”.
    STEP 5: It’s key would be prefixed with “Windows.”.
    STEP 6: Select it and you can find “Canonical Name” and “MUIVerb” in the right side.
    STEP 7: Double – Click on the “MUIVerb” and change the name given in the “Value Data” text box or field.
    STEP 8: Button is renamed, your problem is solved.
