Shows Computer, lists the disk partitions


Lists the available fonts.



Connects you to the specified ftp address.


Lists network locations.



Opens the Samba (file sharing) Window.



Opens the System Settings Window.


Lists the available GNOME themes.

If you know some others URI’s, please present them.
