I'll file this away for when I get W7, but in case no one else has heard about it.  it's hard to believe MS wouldn't put all the features together like this right at the start.

Because I can,
also because I don't care what you want.

This is great. A lot of this I had to find or do through the registry.

Per the article, it also works in vista, but there may be some hacks necessary.  I was able to launch it in vista32.  Don't have the gumption to try in vista64 at home yet....

Pardon me, but that is a .... damn fine cup of coffee.

What you're doing is creating a direct reference to the registry entry. The folder that contains this isn't new, and neither is the method. Want a Control Panel Icon or printers icon on the desktop? Search the registry and find the big ugly key. Make a folder with that key a the file extension (.{fllksdjhflsfjkhl339840178pfy;SJHFV;N;H489yg}) and VI-OH-LA! That being said, it's nice to know that there is a master control section.

Code:
Master Control.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

Pyper, you might consider using method 2:

Code:
Create a shortcut with following path and set desired icon:
    explorer.exe shell:::{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

Personally, I prefer using the MMC to build a better set of tools.
