    well, first, way back at the beginning of my tenure at xp-erience,I came up with the target to get a shrtcut into the device manager.;

    %windir%\system32\mmc.exe c:\windows\system32\ devmgmt.msc

    then, a coupla months ago, someone discovered; windows key+break brings up the system properties window, which goes right into device manager, and a bunch of other stuff.

    so, I never saw this before posted, I'm sure some of you know it, but I didn't;

    rightclick on the my computer,>properties...ha...there it is again, system properties!

    I like the windows+break a little better, but this one you do with one hand, and that is at times neccessary...cool
