How to open the "Printer and Faxes" folder?

3 posts in this topic

I've looked in the help file, in my own tips file with all the CPL names for the AI syntax I use to open CPLs, as well as messages on the board but I can't find how to do this. Is there any way to get directly to the printers and faxes folder? Like what doing this does:

START > SETTINGS > PRINTERS AND FAXES.

Thanks. :D

; Printers and Faxes 
ShellExecute("::{2227A280-3AEA-1069-A2DE-08002B30309D}")

For more CLSIDs of other special folders, see the help file Appendix, CLSIDs of Special Folders.
