Jesse over at has a post up on how to add a WHS shortcut to My Computer, to expose all sorts of nifty functionality in a right-click menu.

To do this, you simply need to add some registry values and have an icon to display.  I have created an "Application" I call "AspireHome My Computer Link" which has the following features

  • Aspire EasyStore h340 Icon
  • Link to your home server displayed in "My Computer"
  • Double click the link to browse the home server shares
  • Right click the link to:
    • Browse the home server shares
    • Access the home server console
    • Remotely computer manage the home server
    • Remote desktop to the home server


Very nice idea. I’m going to run off and try this right now.
