shortcut to control panel page
hi all, not been about for a few weeks, but now i need your help:
how do i open up a certain tab of the control panel with a shortcut?
i use the page shown below a lot, switching between mic and line-in inputs whilst recording, and i'm tired of having to click start >> control panel >> hardware and sound >> sound >> recording tab - i just want to click on a shortcut.
i know that control.exe mmsys.cpl will open up the default 'playback' tab, but how do i get to auto-open the recording tab?
as far as i remember, ever since windows 3, you could simply add ,2 to open the second tab, thusly: control.exe mmsys.cpl, 2
but that doesn't seem to work any more with windows 7. i did think about running the shortcut in xp compatibility mode, but no go...
i know it's just one extra mouse-click to get to where i want to go, but this problem is making my geek-bone itch.
anyone know how to do it?
