Windows 7: The Delete Browsing History Window Shortcut

The Delete Browsing History Window Shortcut

I know that the shortcut to Internet Properties is InetCpl.cpl which brings up the Internet Properties window on the left as shown below, and I know what all the shortcuts are for deleting each segment individually on the Delete Browsing History window. But, does anyone know what the shortcut is to just open the Delete Browsing History window only as shown on the right? The usual way is by using the Delete button on the Internet Properties window, and that leaves both windows open. There must be a shortcut around to open up the Delete Browsing History window by itself without having to open Internet Properties first. Thanks.

Thanks Shawn, for the very quick reply. I have all of those shortcuts. What I am looking for is the shortcut to open the "Delete Browsing History" window only so that is displays on my screen just as if I had pressed the Delete button on the Internet Properties window. Hope that you have a shortcut for that. Thanks.

I'm afraid that I haven't found that one yet. I'm sure there's got to be a way though.

Thanks Odin. And thanks to Shawn for his other shortcuts posted elsewhere.
And now for my next batch file with control-shift-delete.
This query is SOLVED.
Thanks again.
