lost control panel items in top results
« on: February 19, 2014, 07:14:10 AM »

Items in the control panel ("Add or Remove Programs" and the like) used to come up as I typed, but somewhere along the line they stopped. ;(

Under 'options' and aliases I have 'cpanel' checked, and I do see the control panel items when I type 'cpanel' (and hit 'Enter'), but they used to come up directly (as I was typing 'add or rem....').

After opening the file cpanel.alias I created a shortcut called 'AddOrRemovePrograms' and pointed it to %windir%\system32\control.exe with all the params copied from cpanel.alias.  If I put the shortcut in one of my folders, *that* works, but maybe a better way?

Thanks for any help.  Running Win XP Pro if that makes a diff.
