This function allow you to add a shortcut to various system folders on your Desktop or Start Menu.
Create a new folder on your desktop and name it "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" It should look like the normal Control Panel icon (not a shortcut). You can now move the icon anywhere on your desktop or start menu.
The same can be achieved for others by substituting these values:
For Dial Up Networking
Dial-Up Networking.{992CFFA0-F557-101A-88EC-00DD010CCC48}
For Printers
