Short description
Opens control panel items.

Show-ControlPanelItem [-Name] <String[]> [<CommonParameters>]
Show-ControlPanelItem -CanonicalName <String[]> [<CommonParameters>]
Show-ControlPanelItem [[-InputObject] <ControlPanelItem[]>] [<CommonParameters>]

The Show-ControlPanelItem cmdlet opens control panel items on the local computer. You can use it to open control panel 
items by name, category, or description, even on systems that do not have a user interface, and you can pipe control pa
nel items from Get-ControlPanelItem to Show-ControlPanelItem.

Show-ControlPanelItem searches only the control panel items that can be opened on the system. On computers that do not 
have Control Panel or File Explorer, Show-ControlPanelItem searches only control panel items that can open without thes
e components.

This cmdlet is introduced in Windows PowerShell 3.0. It works only on Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012. Because this c
mdlet requires a user interface, it does not work on Server Core installations of Windows Server.
