Shell CLSID Applet Listing + Execution Methods


Shell CLSID Applet Execution Methods
The following will instruct you on how to execute CLSID applet commands as well as to create a batch script file that can be used as a Desktop Shortcut.

A CLSID is a globally unique identifier that identifies a COM class object. If your server or container allows linking to its embedded objects, you need to register a CLSID for each supported class of objects.

CLSID Applet Execution Methods:

CLSID Applet Commands - via CMD (command) Screen:
Windows 8.1 and Windows 8 - https://www.sysnative.com/forums/windows-8-|-windows-rt-tutorials/9290-open-an-elevated-admin-command-prompt-window-windows-8-8-1-a.html
Windows 10 + Windows 7 - https://www.sysnative.com/forums/windows-10-tutorials/11712-open-an-elevated-administrative-command-prompt-cmd-windows-10-a.html

When using CMD, you must add an "Explorer" prefix:
Code:
explorer shell:::{26EE0668-A00A-44D7-9371-BEB064C98683}

CLSID Applet Commands - via Batch Script File:

Test a CLSID shell command first in a CMD screen. If it works, then it will work in a batch file as well. You can then use the batch file as a Desktop shortcut or even pin to Taskbar if you wish.

Open up a new Notepad, then paste the Explorer prefix+ the CLSID shell command into it. Then save it as a batch file (file extension = .bat)

Here is a sample batch script:
Code:
:: Sample Batch Script to open the Action Center via CLSID shell
@echo off
explorer shell:::{BB64F8A7-BEE7-4E1A-AB8D-7D8273F7FDB6}
exit
