Greetings,

The command :
RUNDLL32.EXE SHELL32.DLL,Control_RunDLL desk.cpl,,0

...opens up display properties [Desktop Tab]

What arguments can be passed to rundll32 to open My Computer (Properties), [Computer Name Tab] ??

...or other methods to get same result would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

desk.cpl for DESKtop
access.cpl for ACCESSibility
appwiz.cpl for Add/Remove programs (Application Wizard)
hdwwiz.cpl for Add new Hardware (HarDWare Wizard)
main.cpl for Mouse (This one is not descriptive i think ;-)
mmsys.cpl for MultiMedia SYStems
powercfg.cpl for POWER ConFiGurations
wuaucpl.cpl for Windows Automatic Update
nusrmgr.cpl for New Users ManaGeR
