    Does there exist anywhere on the net a compendium of commandline
    switches for the programmes included in Windows 95-98?

    I know that the various incarnations of Media Player have several, and
    I recently discovered (by pure accident) that the Volume Control
    applet applet has at least 2 (/r and /s). I'm sure there are more.
    Microsoft seems rather stingy about such information, at least in
    their official docs...

    Try this:

    Command line, program name /?

    Use the /? switch to get the "help file" for the operation.

    Like "ping /?" will give you all the switches and a little information on
    usage for Ping.

    Thanks for the reply, but I'm already aware of that. Unfortunately,
    it only works with DOS / console utilities and only lists the
    documented switches.

    As specified in my original query, I'm looking for the switches for
    Windows GUI based applets.

    Anybody know? TIA!
