What is the command line for Indexing Options? I very much enjoyed reading all five pages of Useful Commandline Commands on Windows. But I still cannot find the console command for Indexing Options.

I have this little, free system tray app called UriTree that stores these things in an OPML file---so having as many of these command-line tricks as possible helps me personally. Anyway, here is the screenshot of the applet that I cannot call from the command-line:

Type Windows+R, the then run the command:

rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL srchadmin.dll

I have only tried this on Windows Vista.
