    How can a control panel applet be launched VB? Documentation for this is hard to find.
    Thanks,

    Just shell it

    Shell "control.exe display.cpl"
    is the display one, joy.cpl is the game controllers. Do a Find All Files, search for *.cpl files and you'll get all the applets in your control panel, plus their filename

    Regards,

    That worked perfect. I was missing the control.exe from my shell.
    Thank You!

    Anytime - although when i said display.cpl i actually meant desk.cpl.

    I guess you already figured that though.
