Used this program today to do a before/after of the Registry to figure out how to make Control Panel always show as a menu. Pretty slick deal.
If you want to do it from a batchfile like I did, use this line below. It takes effect best on next logon.
reg add “HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced” /v Start_ShowControlPanel /t reg_dword /d 2 /f
