Shortcuts to Control Panels Tab Pages
If you find yourself using a certain tab on a control panel frequently you can add a shortcut to that tab. Create a shortcut and use the following syntax for the filename:

<Path>\Control.exe <Control Panel File>,<Name of Panel>,<Tab Number start from zero>

For example on my system to bring up the Device Manager tab of the system control panel:

C:\WINDOWS\CONTROL.EXE sysdm.cpl,System,1

* Note there are no spaces after the name of the control panel file. You can find the names of all of the cpl files in your windows system directory.
