C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL mmsys.cpl,,0 | Sound , Playback Devices tab
C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe -r -t 30 -c "System Restarting in 30" | Restart in 30 sec with the given msg
C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe -s -t 30 -c "System Shuttind Down in 30" | Shutdown in 30 sec with the given msg

Every Control Panel applet is a file with a .CPL extension. If you perform a search for these files you'll see that they're all located in the C:\windows\system32 folder.
