Sound (Control Panel)

Opening the Sound window from Control Panel.

In this tutorial you will learn how to open the "Sound" Dialog in Control Panel (Control Panel\All Control Panel Items).

This was in response to a Forum Question.

Create the desktop shortcut:

  1. Right click your desktop
  2. Select "New" and then select "Shortcut"
  3. In the box for "Type the location of the item" enter the following:
    RunDll32.exe shell32.dll, Control_RunDLL mmsys.cpl, , 2
  4. Click Next
  5. In the box for "Type a name for the shortcut" choose a name i.e. "Sounds".
  6. Click Finish

New Shortcut

Create Shortcut (1) Create Shortcut (2)

If you wish to go to other tabs change the number:

RunDll32.exe shell32.dll, Control_RunDLL mmsys.cpl, , #

I've tested with Windows 7

  1. Recording
  2. Sounds
  3. Communications
  4. Playback

I've found a few articles saying you can add the following switch on the end to change tabs.

  1. Audio
  2. Video
  3. MIDI
  4. CD Music
  5. Advanced/Devices
  1. Sounds
  2. Audio
  3. Voice
  4. Hardware
  5. Volume

Now that we have a link to it we could use the Application.FollowHyperlink Function and open the file we created earlier.

If we added it to the desktop you could use the following code:

		Application.FollowHyperlink "C:\Users\#USER#\Desktop\Sounds.lnk"
