List of applications behind the various control panel links – via “Stop user access to control panel”

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/06/21

An interesting set of apps behind the various control panel links from [WayBack] Stop user access to control panel. Even though from 2013, many still work.

I edited most because:

  • some had the form control /name - Microsoft.AutoPlay but the – should have been between the name and the command.
  • none had the commands in code format so it was hard to see what you have to run
