    You might find these handy!

    Hi,

    Just doing some Windows 7 testing and came across these which I find really handy, so thought I would share! These are shortcuts that invoke the various different wizards, control panels etc. Just create shortcuts or invoke from the search/run box in the start menu.

    Thanks,

    Andrew

    Nice, some of those will be rather useful in implementation, especially in schools
