Taskbar/start Menu And System Properties

4 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone new the rundll32 on how to open up the taskbar/startmenu properties and also under system properties the computer name and/or network identification tab in Win 2000 and XP.

Also...can you run rundll32 in AutoIT3 or need to use a bat file?

Try this:

rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Options_RunDLL 1

Found that after much registry digging on XP Pro.

http://www.virtualplastic.net/html/misc_cut.html lists some of these....

You do not need a batch file if you do something like this:

RunCmd("control sysdm.cpl,,1")

Func RunCmd($cmd)
    Return RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c ' & '"' & $cmd & '"', "", @SW_HIDE)
EndFunc

If all else fails, you can create a shortcut to taskbar/startmenu properties and then bundle the LNK file with your script....

FileInstall("C:\Taskbar and Start Menu.LNK",  @TempDir & "\StartMenuProp.lnk")

RunCmd(@TempDir & "\StartMenuProp.lnk")
