Hello all, I've decided to stick with the native task bar due to conflicts with native window files. However I do not wish for it too run all the time.
 

Is there a way to toggle on WinKey commands when the kill command is sent to explorer, as I still use these quite heavily and even have a command on here so I don't have to use the explorer much at all. Will create a task on boot to be rid of it if this one is solved, as I put a win-x command on the computer so I have a context menu to anything I would need (windows 7).

 

As a a fail safe if the above seizes to work or what not, in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System I would like to create customized toggles. How would one go about executing custom arguments in the registry in general? Eg. execute Shell:mycomputerfolder or x argument --

---

I've never done custom entries before on this scale, so if you know of an article on how an entry "HideFastUserSwitching" in that dir for example works this would be much appreciated as the D-Word simply acts as an activation toggle. I did a lot of digging before and was able to find a lot of information in Shell32 and other dlls through PE Explorer and Res Hacker that correspond to many registry entries. One of the programs I use now shows both the common name of folders and the actual code for it if you want to use a shell command. But a guide to this would  be a lot easier, less time consuming then collecting little bit of data and archaicly putting them together.

 

Thanks everyone for any help you can provide at all about this issue, I've had other program disable the taskbar and still access winkeys yet not entirely sure of how.

More concise version:

While on the discussion I've had problems modifying the system entries in general as disabling literally disables the features and removes any thing associated. And where a hide command exist. it will not work. How would one simply remove the entries from showing in the CTRL+ALT+DEL menu: just need "Start Task Manger" and then the ability to add whatever custom arguments I'd like such as MyComputer, Kill Explorer, Launch K-Melon, and Run. And when kill explorer is in effect Win+Keys are still functioning. 

Can't find anything on google. I know these things are possible, just not how. Does any one know what the file dependencies are for this module, am going to re-install PE Explorer and see what I can find. If I do make progress on any of this I will post update.

A lot of the above issues have been corrected. And I can't seem to delete/close, edit or do anything the with post. So this may seem a bit archaic:

Title: CRTL+ALT+DEL Menu Modifications

Post:

a.) Modify menu names, and add custom arguments
b.) Move menu to any posistion on screen

If a moderator sees this, can they please close the post. It's solved. The resources are all in the AUTHUI.DLL and proposal to develop a guide was requested to another developer. I'll update the post in the future if the proposal goes through for future users.
