Run Command to open SCCM client 'Configuration Manager Properties'

I had always checked online to find a Run command to open the 'Configuration Manager Properties' window from a SCCM client machine's Control Panel. Most of the time i had to create a shortcut of the Configuration Manager Properties window on the desktop for easy access.

Recently i found a post by Chris Nackers who has successfully achieved in getting the command line (which i hope is not available from Microsoft site itself). Thanks Chris for sharing the info.

Start - Run -control smscfgrc

Update to the above post:
  • This command works for SCCM 2007 and SCCM 2012 clients. I haven't checked on SMS2003. 
  • And it works pretty fine on Windows 7/8/2003/2008/2012 as well as Server Core operating systems.
