    Add Restart Explorer Option in Desktop and Explorer Contex

    how to add an option "Restart Explorer" in Desktop and Explorer context menu (menu which appears when you right-click) to make the task faster and easier.



    HOW-TO:

    Simply download following ZIP file, extract it and run the "Install.exe" file :

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    It'll automatically install the required files and will ask you to add the option into Windows Registry, accept the confirmation by clicking on "Yes" button and then OK.



    Create Simple Script to Close and Restart Explorer Automatically in Windows XP, Vista and 7

    Many times we need to log off or restart Windows to apply the changes made by a registry script or software. Sometimes we can avoid the log off or restart by doing a simple "End Task" of Windows Explorer and restart Explorer using Task Manager.

    But doing End Task and restarting Explorer using Task Manager requires a few manual steps. Wouldn't it be great if you can get a simple shortcut on Desktop or Quick launch toolbar and simply click on it to automatically end task and restart Explorer?

    Today in this tutorial, we are going to share a simple Batch script which can end task of Explorer and then restart it automatically.

    Simply copy paste following code in NOTEPAD and save the file with name "Restart_Explorer.bat" (including quotes):

    Code:
       @ECHO OFF
        echo.
        echo.
        echo ==========================================
        echo Simple Script to Restart Windows Explorer
        echo.
        echo Created by "Vishal Gupta" for AskVG.com
        echo ==========================================
        echo.
        echo.
        echo STEP 1: Closing Explorer . . .
        echo.
        TASKKILL /F /IM explorer.exe
        echo.
        echo.
        echo STEP 2: Starting Explorer . . .
        start explorer.exe
        echo.
        echo SUCCESS: Explorer is running.
        echo.
        echo.
        PAUSE
    That's it. You can place this script at any location like Desktop, Quick Launch toolbar and whenever you need to restart Explorer, simply run the script.

    If you don't want to create the script manually or face any problem while creating the script, you can download a ready-made script using following link:
