Just thought I would post a few more shortcut folders :)

As you probably know they are just "regular" shell folders.

So if you just want to try it out, you can just type:

Shell:::{GUID}

Here are a few other examples:
shell:::{00C6D95F-329C-409a-81D7-C46C66EA7F33} Default Location
shell:::{0142e4d0-fb7a-11dc-ba4a-000ffe7ab428} Biometric Devices
shell:::{025A5937-A6BE-4686-A844-36FE4BEC8B6D} Power Options
shell:::{05d7b0f4-2121-4eff-bf6b-ed3f69b894d9} Notfication Area icons
shell:::{1206F5F1-0569-412C-8FEC-3204630DFB70} Credential Manager
shell:::{15eae92e-f17a-4431-9f28-805e482dafd4} Get Programs
shell:::{17cd9488-1228-4b2f-88ce-4298e93e0966} Default Programs
shell:::{1D2680C9-0E2A-469d-B787-065558BC7D43} Fusion Cache

shell:::{62D8ED13-C9D0-4CE8-A914-47DD628FB1B0} Region and Language
shell:::{78F3955E-3B90-4184-BD14-5397C15F1EFC} Performance Information and Tools

I guess when we are in the process of memorizing the company's IPv6 addresses, we might as well learn some GUID's as well

If you want to look for more shell folders look in the registry
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID
They usually contain a subfolder called "ShellFolder" and a Reg_Expand_SZ called "localized string"

Just wrote a little Powershell script to cycle through CLSID and get all the GUIDS that contains a "ShellFolder" and a key called "LocalizedString"

So if anyone can't sleep tonight, you could sit down and figure out what is hidden behind these GUID's

Here is the result:

Shell:::{00C6D95F-329C-409a-81D7-C46C66EA7F33} Default Location

Here's a list from MSDN on the GUID's:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee330741(VS.85).aspx

So it looks like some of the GUID's you have are for applications maybe? Since they aren't on the list on the MSDN site.
