Make a shortcut with Target: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MSCONFIG.EXE

Normally a shortcut can be found in the TOOLS menu of System Information
like below:

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSInfo\Tools\SysEdit]
@="System Configuration Utility"
"command"="C:\\WINDOWS\\SYSTEM\\msconfig.exe"
"cabcommand"="C:\\WINDOWS\\SYSTEM\\msconfig.exe"
"cabparameters"="%2"
"description"="Runs Windows system configuration utility"

If you are going to use MSCONFIG to cause certain programs not to be
loaded at startup then better use "Startup Control Panel"

Tried the suggested shortcut and did not work. Searched
for msconfig.exe and not found in my system. Is there a
way to recover it from the WIN 98 CD? Thx.

Just extracted a copy using Win98SE System Tool SFC (System File Checker).
But the extracted one is 4 months older and has an older version number
compared to the one present in Win98SE folder \Windows\System and is
also 10KB bigger.
