Program Alias


Recommended Posts


A simple but handy feature is the create a program alias for uTorrent.

Some programs like Nero has this.

Some information about how this works:

1. Goto Start Menu

2. Run (or at once with WindowsKey + R)

3. nero

If you have Nero installed it will start.

Example of the register file that will work if you have the right path


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\uTorrent.exe]

@="C:\\Program Files\\uTorrent\\uTorrent.exe"

"Path"="C:\\Program Files\\uTorrent"


uTorrent could create an alias like this so you can always start uTorrent quickly.

1. WindowsKey + R

2. utorrent

'You' can think about it, at least.

Have a good day!

I've known people that prefer to type out commands, but the process is still slower and more key-presses to do then clicking an icon in your desktop / taskbar.

Changing your paths does not create an alias, it just makes the program available in any directory, like dir / ipconfig, etc. Basically you are making utorrent.exe a system-wide available program.

that's what i use - alt+escape-> (start typing utorrent -).. ut.. -> enter

there ya go :) ofc there has to be a shortcut somewhere and it has to be indexed.. (u can index the exe too btw..)

using launchy is easier that using the run command.. u still need a 2 button combination to open a box.. the difference is it is easier to index all your mp3s and stuff than doing that for the run command.. and if u start typing in launchy u dont need to type the full name of the program(mp3, directory, ...)
