    Or - if you don't like the cryptic numbers:
    Code:
    control.exe /name [Canonical name]
    Example:
    Code:
    control.exe /name Microsoft.System
    control.exe /name Microsoft.WindowsDefender
    Some not work:
    control.exe /name Microsoft.DesktopGadgets -> Gadgets not included in Windows 8
    control.exe /name Microsoft.WindowsAnytimeUpgrade -> only in Core or Pro, not WMC
    control.exe /name Microsoft.Infrared -> only if infrared is available
