    They are literally the exact commands spelled out in this thread's OP shoved into a batch file with the "Run as Admin" option checked and a custom icon set for them. Here are mine... Obviously they live on my C:\ drive at C:\DellFanControl\DellFanCmd-2.1\
    It takes a bit of Windows screwery to pin batch file shortcuts to your taskbar... I basically had to rename them as a .exe, pin the exe then rename the file back to .bat . Note, they do not run silently... that takes more Windows screwery than I care about at the moment.

    Here is what my taskbar looks like: upload_2020-10-17_15-54-8.png

    DellFanCmd_ECDisable.bat
    C:\DellFanControl\DellFanCmd-2.1\DellFanCmd.exe ec-disable-nofanchg

    DellFanCmd_ECEnable.bat
    C:\DellFanControl\DellFanCmd-2.1\DellFanCmd.exe ec-enable

    DellFanCmd_FanLevel0.bat
    C:\DellFanControl\DellFanCmd-2.1\DellFanCmd.exe ec-disable-nofanchg
    C:\DellFanControl\DellFanCmd-2.1\DellFanCmd.exe fan1-level0
    C:\DellFanControl\DellFanCmd-2.1\DellFanCmd.exe fan2-level0


    DellFanCmd_FanLevel1.bat
    C:\DellFanControl\DellFanCmd-2.1\DellFanCmd.exe ec-disable-nofanchg
    C:\DellFanControl\DellFanCmd-2.1\DellFanCmd.exe fan1-level1
    C:\DellFanControl\DellFanCmd-2.1\DellFanCmd.exe fan2-level1


    DellFanCmd_FanLevel2.bat
    C:\DellFanControl\DellFanCmd-2.1\DellFanCmd.exe ec-disable-nofanchg
    C:\DellFanControl\DellFanCmd-2.1\DellFanCmd.exe fan1-level2
    C:\DellFanControl\DellFanCmd-2.1\DellFanCmd.exe fan2-level2

    To run silently you can point your shortcuts to cmdh.exe (attached). This program takes the same parameters as cmd.exe but does not spawn a visible console window ("h" is for "hidden"). The command would just be
    cmdh.exe [full path to batch file]
