What’s the Command for That Control Panel Thing Again?

Sometimes, a bit of a reference is all you need, and it seems Microsoft often overlooks the obvious, or at least doesn’t make it too easy to find.  Instead of the click, click, click to get to a specific control panel, it is often easier and faster to just bring up a Run box and type it into there.

The problem, of course, is type what into it?  It isn’t like some of them are that easy to remember.

That’s why I was glad to have come across About.com‘s article “Command Line Commands for Control Panel Applets“.  It shows and compares the various control applets from Windows XP, Vista, 7 and even 8. Good find!
