A+: More Control Panel
Properties Sheets allow you to invoke many Control Panel functions by picking Properties after right-clicking in:
- My Computer/Computer, for the System Window
- Taskbar, for Taskbar and Start Menu Properties
- Desktop (in XP) for the Display window (In Vista/7, the Personalize Control Panel opens Personalization for the same functionality)
- Network in Vista/7, for the Network and Sharing Center (In XP, right-clicking on My Network Places to pick Properties opens Network Connections)
You can also launch many Control Panel options from the Command Prompt; for example Start | Run | inetcpl.cpl opens the Internet Properties dialog where you can click on Delete to clear Temporary Internet Files (aka Cache), Cookies and Browsing History, which can solve many Internet Explorer problems.
