This is great, but how do I bring up the tabs and sub items on each tab? For example, sysdm.cpl brings up the system properties, but how do I bring up the Hardware, Advanced, System Protection, and Remote tabs in System Properties?

Or, for my purposes, how do I bring up the User Profiles which is on the Advanced tab of System Properties?
