Direct Control Panel Paths?

Hi All,

I have installed RocketDock on my computer and I want use animated icons to launch just about everything I need to do. They require a direct path. I can't create a "sound" shortcut and then change it to an animated icon, as far as I know.

The path for control panel is: C:\Windows\system32\control.exe

I'm looking for the path for the "sound" menu (playback tab, specifically).

I also want the paths for:
My computer
Calculator

Thanks!

%windir%\system32\calc.exe

Not sure how to open on playback tab, try %windir%\system32\sndvol.exe then click on the icon for system sounds for example.

Maybe it will accept this:

rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL mmsys.cpl,,0
