notepad - to open notepad regedit - to open windows registry editor, careful to use it, since changing the registry value promiscuously may cause error on your windows. msconfig - i usually use it to manage my system tray (at the bottom right near clock) where there's like shortcut for some program, such as antivirus, etc. Some program after being installed automatically set to be upload on system tray everytime we start windows, the more program you got in your system tray, your pc will run slower since it consumes more memory and when we first logon to windows, it will take more time since windows has to load all the program on the system tray also, so i only put a really important program in my system tray such as antivirus. If you run 2 OS in your PC, u can manage it by using msconfig which one do you want to use as the primary OS. We can also manage windows' services here, which one do you want to disable if you don't need it. I usually only use this 3 besides calc, anyway hope it helps :)

You simply press Winkey+R+clac for calculator, Winkey+R+mspaint for mspaint and Winkey+R+explorer. If you know where the program is then just add the path+program name. The reason why the above don't have the path is because they are on system path define by environment variables, like type set in CMD prompt. Hope this help.

For individual control panel components, they are named with *.cpl like desk.cpl, netsetup.cpl or nusrmgr.cpl. Do the search for the rest.
