    Shells, Shortcuts, and CLSID Listing (Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7)

    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 - RUN Dialogue Box:

    Bring up the RUN Dialogue Box -
    Windows 8.1 and Windows 8 - Swipe the top-right of screen and select the "Search" Charm | type run | Select Run from the list

    Windows 10 + Windows 7 - Click on START | type run | select run from the menu options

    Paste the CLSID command into the RUN box.

    CLSID Applet Commands - via CMD (command) Screen:

    Windows 10 + Windows 7 - http://www.sysnative.com/forums/wind...dows-10-a.html

    When using CMD, you must add an "Explorer" prefix:
    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:

    @echo off
    explorer shell:::{BB64F8A7-BEE7-4E1A-AB8D-7D8273F7FDB6}
