Windows 7: How to directly (!) call printer preferences for printer X?

How to directly (!) call printer preferences for printer X?

Assume I installed previously some printer (drivers) for physical and PDF printers.

They work.

I can access the preferences of e.g. printer X by:

START--->Control Panel--->Devices and Printers--->Right click on Printer X---->printing preferences from context menu

But: Is there a way to access this printer preferences dialog DIRECTLY?

I want to create.e.g. a shortcut to printer-something *.exe or *.cpl and get immediately the dialog window.

How does that work?
