Great desktop shortcut

I came across this really great shortcut for a desktop icon.
This shortcut opens a vast menu for admin maintenance.

C:\Windows\explorer.exe shell:::{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

If you find anything better let me know.

Thanks,

Iggy in the cool part of Arizona

I wish I could take credit for it but someone else found it and accidently came across it on the web someplace.
