Does anyone know of a link that lists all the run routines like msconfig,
etc.

It would be nice to be able to print that out and keep it handy on one
sheet
(or two) because those of us who don't use them everyday tend to forget
them. Especially us older folks. Maybe even a one line description of
what
they do?

Note sure if there is a complete list (including the GUI tools). Some of the
commonly used GUI commands / Tools are:

MSCONFIG (System Configuration Utility)
MSINFO32 (System Information)
CLEANMGR.EXE (Disk Cleanup)
DFRG.MSC (Defragmenter GUI)
DEVMGMT.MSC (Device Manager)
%SystemRoot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe (System Restore)
ntbackup.exe (NTBackup)

and so forth...
