Sysdm.cpl (that’s a lowercase “L”) opens the System Properties screen from the command line.

There’s actually a whole array of common control panel tools you can kick off from the command line. Microsoft has published over two dozen popular control panel commands if you’re interested.  You can open everything from the Date/Time properties to your Internet Properties all from the Run box.

Keep in mind that you need to be logged in as a local administrator and the user whose profile you wish to delete can’t be logged in.  That’s why the delete button is grayed out for me because I’m logged in as the to-be-deleted user.
