syntax for shortcut to "sound" window?

I used to have shortcuts in XP on my desktop that would open the playback and recording mixers. Now with 7 we have this one window called "sound" that you get when you go to control panel and choose "manage audio devices". Does anyone know the pathway to that so i can make a shortcut? I don't know what the executable is called so i can't find it by searching.

Hi,

Try mmsys.cpl (type into the Start box to test it), it should be what you're looking for.

How can I make it such that in Search Results, when I open a folder in a new window (by right-clicking a file), I will be directed to a window with the "full path" displayed in the address bar, instead of Search Results\"Path" or Search Results>"Path"? Edit: "Right-click -> open file location"...
