My XP method is to:

  1. Go to C:\WINDOWS\system32\
  2. Right click on cmd.exe
  3. Send to Desktop (shortcut)
  4. Right click on the Desktop shortcut
  5. Clear the start in parameter

On the address line of any Explorer directory, start typing cmd and you will get a list of any icons on the Desktop starting with cmd. Select cmd.exe.lnk and it will execute the shortcut in that directory.

This works for all your Desktop items. Try typing MY.
