Hi pdcagirl,

There may be an easier way, but this is how I do it ...

Open Control Panel > Folder Options > Display tab > check the box for Show Control Panel in My Computer

Then go to My Computer > right click Control Panel icon < create shortcut > and it will ask if you want the shortcut to go to the desktop

Bless you bless you! Worked liked a charm. Will copy this path and put on paper this time to keep. Seems few people know how to do this and it takes going to France to know how :) Thanks ever so much.

You can also shortcut Control Panel from the command line by typing control.exe

Almost every native windows app has a shortcut that can be run from the command line

Here is a pretty good list of them: http://forums.techar...eaks/540865.htm
