Creating a simple openbox desktop manager

Post by arcadianblue »

This is relatively easy to do.
Open regedit, navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell
Right click on shell. Create new key
Give it a name. Right click on that and give the entry the name command
In the command, create a string
Put the complete path to the application's .exe file

To use: Right click anywhere on the desktop to access the openbox manager's applications

I think you mean openbox style desktop manager.
Windows 10 should've been named Windows X

True enough! I kind of got my inspiration from Crunchbang 11 distro.
