Windows has a set of specific folders identified by unique strings called CLSID or Windows Class Identifiers. These folders are accessible using the CLSID identifiers that Windows assigns to each folder in the Windows registry. If you know the codes, you can start them easily. In addition to the shell, shortcut and CLSID commands available in Windows 7, Windows 8 offers new shortcuts, shell commands and CLIDs.
