    All Hidden Apps List Within WinXP

    Since We Are On The Subject & Many Find It Interesting, Here Is The Complete List:
    To run any of these apps go to Start > Run and type the executable name, for example: charmap


    1. Character Map = charmap.exe (very useful for finding unusual characters)

    2. Disk Cleanup = cleanmgr.exe

    3. Clipboard Viewer = clipbrd.exe (views contents of Windows clipboard)

    4. Dr Watson = drwtsn32.exe (Troubleshooting tool)

    5. DirectX diagnosis = dxdiag.exe (Diagnose & test DirectX, video & sound cards)

    6. Private character editor = eudcedit.exe (allows creation or modification of characters)

    7. IExpress Wizard = iexpress.exe (Create self-extracting / self-installing package)

    8. Mcft Synchronization Manager = mobsync.exe (appears to allow synchronization of files on the network for when working offline. Apparently undocumented).

    9. Windows Media Player 5.1 = mplay32.exe (Retro version of Media Player, very basic).

    10. ODBC Data Source Administrator = odbcad32.exe (something to do with databases)

    11. Object Packager = packager.exe (to do with packaging objects for insertion in files, appears to have comprehensive help files).

    12. System Monitor = perfmon.exe (very useful, highly configurable tool, tells you everything you ever wanted to know about any aspect of PC performance, for uber-geeks only )

    13. Program Manager = progman.exe (Legacy Windows 3.x desktop shell).

    14. Remote Access phone book = rasphone.exe (documentation is virtually non-existant).

    15. Registry Editor = regedt32.exe [also regedit.exe] (for hacking the Windows Registry).

    16. Network shared folder wizard = shrpubw.exe (creates shared folders on network).


    17. File siganture verification tool = sigverif.exe

    18. Volume Contro = sndvol32.exe (I've included this for those people that lose it from the System Notification area).

    19. System Configuration Editor = sysedit.exe (modify System.ini & Win.ini just like in Win98! ).

    20. Syskey = syskey.exe (Secures XP Account database - use with care, it's virtually undocumented but it appears to encrypt all passwords, I'm not sure of the full implications).

    21. Mcft Telnet Client = telnet.exe

    22. Driver Verifier Manager = verifier.exe (seems to be a utility for monitoring the actions of drivers, might be useful for people having driver problems. Undocumented).

    23. Windows for Workgroups Chat = winchat.exe (appears to be an old NT utility to allow chat sessions over a LAN, help files available).

    24. System configuration = msconfig.exe (can use to control starup programs)

    25. gpedit.msc used to manage group policies, and permissions
