Taking control over your Win7

Postby viking60 » 09 Jul 2010, 11:37

Yes you read it right - this is a Windows tip. Making life easier for those poor people that have to use it at work :)

Have you ever been annoyed of the amount of navigation you have to do when you want to perform a certain task in windows? Well here is a tip that will put you back in the drivers seat.
Put this in the address bar of your IE:

Code: Select all

shell:::{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

Hit enter and you can control your system again. It will pop up a control panel that contains all you need.
Manjaro 64bit on the main box -Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz and nVidia Corporation GT200b [GeForce GTX 275] (rev a1. + Centos on the server - Arch on the laptop.
