I always wondered why "VIEW" menu is not displayed on desktop, its displayed in each folder but not on desktop. I wanted to enable it on desktop so that I can set the desktop icons view, like Thumbnails, Small Icons, List, etc. Thats why yesterday I was playing with Shell32.dll file in Resource Hacker{A Freeware that can be downloaded from here} and found a way to enable it on desktop too after hours r&d. :flowers:

So here we go:

1.) Open %windir%\System32\Shell32.dll file in Resource Hacker.
2.) Goto: Menu -> 215 -> 1033.
3.) In right-side pane, replace the line saying:




i.e., U hv to only change the ID 28674 to 0

Now after restarting the PC, u'll see the VIEW menu on desktop and it'll work too w/o any problem. :thumbsup:
