Using Hyperbole Global Buttons to launch Windows tools

Lot’s of functionality exists in Control Panel Applets and Management Control on Windows, but it’s not easy to remember the filenames for these. With GNU Hyperbole, I can add these as links in my global button file, which is easily accessible from everywhere. Activating a global button is C-h h g a (Hyperbole -> GButton -> Act), and I can use my regular search functions to find the button I need.
