I completely agree and think about customizing 100+ lab workstations or even more in a corporate environment. Here is a similar idea:
put "Add OLEDB connection" back into Database Connections
Unfortunately I do not think ESRI agrees or understands the needs, the end-user challenges and customization nightmares required for this "button" based on their response.
What is strange when using this button it places the connection in Database Connections so why was it moved again? Because it was someones's good idea to save 1 line of screen real estate in Catalog View?
