Creating shortcut for Add/Remove Programs window

Here's a cool tip to directly open the Add/Remove Programs window without going through the Control Panel window.

Type control appwiz.cpl in the Run command window and click OK.

In my case, I needed a shorcut the desktop to the Add/Remove Programs and here are the basic steps:

1. Right-click on the desktop
2. Select New -> Shortcut
3. In the Create Shorcut window, enter control appwiz.cpl and click Next.
4. In the Select a Title for the program, enter a descriptive name and click Finish.

And if the shortcut icon is a big ugly, then you can change it as well from the shortcut properties window.
