CLSID List and Windows Special Folders Cheat Sheet

clsidThis is the CLSID List and Windows Special Folders Cheat Sheet. Most of the Special Folders within the Operating System are known by unique strings also known as CLSIDs or Class Identifiers. Some can be used with FileSelectFile, FileSelectFolder, and Run. If and when a Windows Shell needs an access to a system folder, it uses the CLSID to search through the Registry to search for the appropriate .dll or other object.
Your RUN command may support various CLSIDs depending on system config and installation. To open a CLSID folder via Run, simply specify the CLSID as your first parameter. To maximize use of all listed CLSIDs, you can either use RUN to execute the example string, or create a new folder and name it with the specified CLSID, or just paste it in your Windows Explorer and run it from the address bar.clsid
For example, to open the Recycle Bin folder:
Open Run and copy-paste the following and hit OK.
::{645ff040-5081-101b-9f08-00aa002f954e}
Create a new folder, and name it as
Recycle Bin.{645ff040-5081-101b-9f08-00aa002f954e}
Copy Paste the following in the Explorer address bar
shell:::{645ff040-5081-101b-9f08-00aa002f954e}
3. Other samples for execution with Run
Run ::{450d8fba-ad25-11d0-98a8-0800361b1103} ; Opens the “My Documents” folder.
Run ::{208d2c60-3aea-1069-a2d7-08002b30309d} ; Opens the “My Network Places”
