    Where can I find a list of shortcuts to various system items, like right now I'm going to Services the slow way,

    START -> CONTROL PANEL -> ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS -> COMPUTER MANAGEMENT -> SERVICES AND APPLICATIONS -> SERVICES

    and there's probably some command I can just type in to quickly get there. There must be a list somewhere of how to go directly to any Control Panel item I need, what to type at the command prompt.

    That one's SERVICES.MSC. I don't know of a definitive list, but you can list most control panel and MMC items with a command like

    Code:
    dir %systemroot\system32\*.cpl;*.msc
    (on Windows XP 32-bit; may be different on Vista or 64-bit platforms.)
