Accessing Control Panel Items (C#.net)

The following code shows you how to access control panel items through coding. Adding all commands to listbox then selecting it and press button to view it.

using Shell32;

public void Form1_Load(System.Object sender, System.EventArgs e)
      ListBox1.Items.Add("appwiz.cpl"); //for opening install/uninstall program
      ListBox1.Items.Add("desk.cpl"); //for opening desktop properties
      ListBox1.Items.Add("hdwwiz.cpl"); //for opening device manager
      ListBox1.Items.Add("intl.cpl"); //for opening region and language properties
      ListBox1.Items.Add("inetcpl.cpl"); //for opening internet properties
public void Button1_Click(System.Object sender, System.EventArgs e)
       Shell objShell = new Shell();

It works perfectly.
But I wasn't knowing that I must add Shell32.dll to "references".
Thanks.Good work.
