Windows 7: Shortcut to Color Scheme

Shortcut to Color Scheme

I seem to have to open 2 other windows before I can get to the link to open the windows Color Scheme box (Advanced Appearance Settings).

Does anyone know how to make a shortcut that will go directly to this? It is the "Advanced Appearance Settings" button in the "Window Color and Appearance" link of the "Personalization" window... (ugh).

Thanks in advance.

Right-click the desktop or in a folder and go 'New>Shortcut' and paste the following in for the location.

rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL desk.cpl,,5
(there's no need to worry about the path because it gets added to the new link automatically.)
