List of Rundll32 shortcut commands for Windows Vista.

I have compiled a list of Rundll32 commands, which can be used for directly invoking the specified functions or to create shortcuts of those, which you use and require frequently. These shortcut / commands have been compiled from various sources, all of which have been acknowledged at the end of the article.

To Create Desktop Shortcuts : Rt click on desktop > New > Shortcut. In the first box of the Create Shortcut Wizard, copy-paste the desired command. Then Click Next. Give the Shortcut a Name. Finally, select an appropriate icon for it. More on How to Create a Shortcut on the Desktop at KB140443.

Some of them can prove to be rather useful, eg, copy-paste rundll32.exe keymgr.dll,KRShowKeyMgr in Vista's Start Menu Search bar and hit enter; and you will see the Stored User Names and Passwords Box pop up ! The Stored User Names and Passwords Applet lets you assign user names and passwords to use, when needing to authenticate yourself, to services in domains other than the one you are currently logged into. Its normally very awkward to access buts this way lets you do so faster ! You can thus access quite a few useful functions easily !
