(Solved) - System Management Menu (Win+X) Modification(5 posts)
Vishal has found the solution to this issue. It turns out that Windows-8 does a hash mark check on all shortcuts in the Win+X menu at each startup. (The Win+X menu items are listed at C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WinX.) If the shortcut doesn't check-out with the "pre-approved" list it is deleted. However, this can be avoided. Should you want to add any shortcut to this menu, see:
I've added RegEdit and Task Scheduler to mine and it works just fine.
bmwbiker, good to see you found a temporary resolve via vishal.
However, please mark the point that everytime you do a MS update that could be thrown out and not work.
8 is consumer preview and not ready for market anyways yet.
I have tried a few workarounds and updates have trashed them so be aware on this point.
8 is not an OS yet, it relies on the testing community to resolves issues and report back, take in ideas, evaluate etc.
Tricks and tweaks brilliant to a point but workarounds not.
Just a point to note folks.
