    Hello beems, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    There's this shortcut below for "Map Network Drive".

    I'll keep looking for the other one, and post back when/if I find it for you.

    Thanks! That helps greatly! I simply assumed it would be a CLSID. Glad I posted here anyway - smart group of people here.

    I can't find CLSIDs for the Pictures, Videos, etc libraries, but I did validate that the following work, even in other languages (tested in Russian)

    • explorer shell:PicturesLibrary
    • explorer shell:MusicLibrary
    • explorer shell:VideosLibrary
    • explorer shell:Favorites
    • explorer shell:Downloads

    Hello Beems,

    Here's a full list of shell commands if you like.

    Shell Commands in Windows 8

    I will look into the CLSIDs for these to see if I may be able to find any, and will post back if I do.

    Beems,

    It looks like there's only a GUID/CLSID for "libraries", but not for the individual ones that can be used for a shortcut.

    Luckily, you can use the shell commands for them instead.

    I see one of the GUID's is a "Command Folder" {437ff9c0-a07f-4fa0-af80-84b6c6440a16}
    I looked at that folder, but I don't see how it's supposed to be used. Is there any documentation on it?

    I ran across that one by accident, but like you, I have no idea what it's for yet.

    "Delegate folder that appears in Computer" looks mysterious. I find that CLSID opens an empty folder that I can't even put anything into. Anybody know what it's for?

    Hello Brink. First of all, thank you for this very thorough and well documented list.

    Now, I have a question:

    Apart from the two search CLSIDs (that use the new modern interface)

    Search Apps {2559a1f8-21d7-11d4-bdaf-00c04f60b9f0}
    Search Files {2559a1f0-21d7-11d4-bdaf-00c04f60b9f0}

    were you able to find the CLSID for "Search Settings" (equivalent for WIN + W keyboard shortcut)? I couldn't locate it in this list.

    I tried to search for it manually in the registry, but had no luck. Also tried with RegShot Unicode (x64), but didn't get any useful info either.

    It would be very helpful for me if I could find this CLSID as I want to integrate it as a button in a custom toolbar for Total Commander (I use it for 12+ years and it's miles ahead Windows File Explorer). Not that I'm so lazy and I couldn't press Win+W, but would be nice as a custom button too

    Thanks!
