I want to open another program (like everest) to show system information instead the default windows 7 system information window when right-clicking on computer

enter image description here

Is there a way to replace the action on the "Properties Item" on the context menu on Windows 7?

According to this link… You may want a particularly obscure registry key, but you might need to be administrator to do it and even then I don't think it'd edit it for properties for example but I haven't tested it. But definitely the standard context menu edits e.g. here… don't apply to that Computer menu – barlop Dec 27 '12 at 13:58

welcome by the way screenshot is in which language??? – vishal sharma Dec 27 '12 at 13:50
@user962284 Actually no it doesn't answer your question. It's a workaround. You asked about how to work with the Computer menu. I just tested the File menu and Folder menu here which is a link editing the context menu… And none of these things affect the Computer context menu at all. Now it's possible you found a link that shows you the registry key that does it, but it doesn't just pop up -not the first link anyway- with Googling what vishal recommended, so I suggest that you share it. – barlop Dec 27 '12 at 13:51
