  1. Thanks for sharing this comprehensive list of commands. I found your blog very helpful and would like to exchange link of my website with your blog.

  2. These are really not commands in the strictest sense of the word. What they essentially do is launch control panel or other applets, or applications, bypassing the need to actually open the control panel or click on the program icon.

  3. sorry, this might be a dumb question, but how do you open the "run" prompt without having to click on it?
