Control Panel Access

Recommended Posts



I have tried to run the sounds control from the control panel with a shortcut and the run command but it didn't work.

So I have the Question: How to start a control panel feature? For Example the Sound controls.

Is there a special commend or a trick?

Did you try CONTROL.EXE?

Run(@windowsdir & "\control.exe mmsys.cpl")

You could always just make a batch file...

@echo off

control.exe mmsys.cpl

I'm not sure, but if you add the ",," after mmsys.cpl it will jump to a particular tab.
