Or create a shortcut to it. I created a shortcut to dxdiag (and regedit) and put it in the Assesories/system tools/ folder for easy access.

How did you go about making a shortcut into system tools for the dxdiag ?

The easiest way is to right-click on your desktop and choose "New" then click on "shortcut". In the box, type in the path:

c:/windows/system32/dxdiag

or browse to that location. Hit enter. That will put an icon on your desktop. If you want it in your administrative tools folder, just open up that folder and perform the same operation there.

Another neat trick I like is to create a shortcut for shutdown and restart on your desktop. Right-click on your desktop, choose new > shortcut. Type in Shutdown -s -t 00. Click next. Name it (shutdown or whatever). Finish. For Restart, type in Shutdown -r -t 00. Name it. Click finish. Then you can right click on the icon, choose properties, choose change icon, and look for an icon you'd like to use for it. I use the red button and green arrow, respectively.
