Windows 2012 Server - Power Tools - Commands

Most of the posts on this site are designed to work as a reference for myself down the road when I have a question and know I have addressed it in the past.
Just dont remember how.
This is one such scenario where I stared to use Windows 2012 Server. 
Due to the major change in the way things are organized, I am not able to get to configurations the way I am normally used to for over a decade.
Learning new ways of doing what I have done for years has been a pain, but also a learning process.
I finally ran into a scenario where I was trying to disable the administrator account and use a different account for administration purposes.
Which I follow as standard practice.
The easiest way to get to my trusted UI tools I found was to start up the power shell and type in the corrosponding commands for screen I am trying to get to.

Interface Command
Certificates certmgr.msc
Indexing Service ciadv.msc
Computer Management compmgmt.msc
Device Manager devmgmt.msc
Disk Defragmenter dfrg.msc
Disk Management diskmgmt.msc
Event Viewer eventvwr.msc
Shared Folders fsmgmt.msc
Group Policy gpedit.msc
Local Users and Groups lusrmgr.msc
Removable Storage ntmsmgr.msc
Removable Storage Operator Requests ntmsoprq.msc
Performance perfmon.msc
Resultant Set of Policy rsop.msc
Local Security Settings secpol.msc
Services services.msc
Windows Management Infrastructure (WMI) wmimgmt.msc
Component Services comexp.msc

Hope this helps you save time on your next experience.
