i know that clicking on start then run and typing "control desktop"
will bring up display properties and "control mouse" will display the
mouse settings, but what other switches are available for use with
"control" through the run box ?

Greetings

Control from the command prompt is used to open .cpl files that are in the
path variable.
Here is a link that lists some examples ...

Description of Control Panel Files in Windows XP

How to Open Control Panel Folders from the Command Prompt
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;180025

You do not need to open a command prompt, Just the Run box.

Open Control Panel...
Start | Run | control | OK

Open Folder Options...
Start | Run | control folders | OK

Some will open without using control (quicker to type).
i.e. Start | Run | sysdm.cpl | OK
-----

Here are a few...

control admintools Administrative Tools

Control color Display Properties @Screen Saver tab

control date/time Date and Time Properties

control desktop Display Properties

control folders Folder Options

control fonts Fonts Folder

control international Regional and Language Options

control keyboard Keyboard Control Panel

control main.cpl @X Mouse Control Panel

control main.cpl @1 Keyboard Control Panel

control mouse Mouse Control Panel

Control netconnections Network Connections

control printers Printers Folder

control schedtasks Add Scheduled Task

control Sysdm.cpl System Properties @General tab

control Sysdm.cpl,System,1 System Properties @Computer Name tab

control Sysdm.cpl,System,2 System Properties @Hardware tab

control Sysdm.cpl,System,3 System Properties @Advanced tab

control Sysdm.cpl,System,4 System Properties @System Restore tab

control Sysdm.cpl,System,5 System Properties @Automatic Updates tab

control Sysdm.cpl,System,6 System Properties @Remote tab

control userpasswords User Accounts (Home version)

control userpasswords2 User Accounts (Pro version)
-----

Printers & Faxes for some reason doesn't have a *.cpl file.
Niether do Administrative Tools, Fonts, Scanners and Cameras, Scheduled
Tasks or Taskbar and Start Menu.

They are Namespace objects. Whatever that is. Has something to do with
being a shell folder with its own GUID.
-----

*.cpl files are Control Panel extensions, they show up in the Control Panel.

You may not have all of these and you may have some not listed here. This
is a list from my machine.

Control Panel cpl's:

access.cpl = Accessibility Options
appwiz.cpl = Add or Remove Programs
desk.cpl = Desktop Control Panel = Display Properties
hdwwiz.cpl = Add Hardware Control Panel Applet
inetcpl.cpl = Internet Control Panel = Internet Properties
intl.cpl = Regional and Language Options
irprops.cpl = Wireless Link Control Panel Applet
joy.cpl = Game Controllers
jpicpl32.cpl = JavaPlugin
main.cpl = Mouse Properties
mmsys.cpl = Sounds and Audio Device Properties
ncpa.cpl = Network Connections Control-Panel Stub
nusrmgr.cpl = Windows User Manager = Users Accounts
nvtuicpl.cpl = NVIDIA nView Control Panel, Version 52.16
nwc.cpl = Client Service for NetWare Applet
odbccp32.cpl = Microsoft Data Access - ODBC Control Panel
plotman.cpl = Autodesk Hardcopy Plotter Manager
powercfg.cpl = Power Management Configuration Control Panel Applet or Power
Options Properties
SanCpl.cpl = SiSoftware Sandraâ„¢ English Control Panel Extension (Win32
x86)(NT)(ANSI)
sapi.cpl = SAPI 5 = Speech Properties
styleman.cpl = Autodesk Hardcopy Plot Style Manager
sysdm.cpl = System Properties
telephon.cpl = Telephony Control Panel
timedate.cpl = Time Date Control Panel Applet
wuaucpl.cpl = Automatic Updates Control Panel (Added by SP2??)
Wscui.cpl = SP2 Security Center (SP2)

To open any *.cpl file, type the name in the Run box.
I.e. Start | Run | Type: desk.cpl | OK

OK David.

There's a whole bunch that I don't understand.

OE makes links where there shouldn't be any. Nothing in this post should
have any links.

Here's what I've figured out so far...

This pasted in Start | Run
rundll32.exe Shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL
opens the Control Panel (control.exe).

rundll32.exe Shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL with some of the CLSIDs added to it
should also run some of the applets. I don't know enough yet to figure that
part out.

This pasted in Start | Run
file:///::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}
opens My Computer

With this used as a shortcut address
%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}
opens My Computer.

This pasted in Start | Run
file:///::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\::{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}
opens the Control Panel (control.exe).

With this used as a shortcut address
%windir%\System32\Control.exe Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}
opens the Control Panel (control.exe).

With this used as a shortcut address
Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}
opens the Control Panel (control.exe).

This pasted in Start | Run
file:///::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\::{2227A280-3AEA-1069-A2DE-08002B30309D}

opens Network Connections

{E211B736-43FD-11D1-9EFB-0000F8757FCD} Has something to do with Scanners &
Cameras.

But I can't open anything with
file:///::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\::{E211B736-43FD-11D1-9EFB-0000F8757FCD}

control sticpl.cpl opens Scanners & Cameras. sticpl.cpl is not to be found
on my machine. Hmmm.....

Scanners & Cameras is a Namespace object. Whatever that is.
Has something to do with being a shell folder with its own GUID.

Control.exe is NOT the control panel. It just translates short commands to
long commands.

OK, David, you told me in another thread that SHELL32.dll is the Control
Panel.

Just thought that I'd post this info here. :-)
