    Notification Area Icons location


    Could not find "Notification Area Icons" in "All Control Panel Items" for Windows 10, but I could find it under Settings-System-Notifications. Is that normal for Windows 10? How can I add it in the "All Control Panel Items"?
    Thanks

    Hi @profdh, and welcome to tenforums.com!
    It's normal for Windows 10 as they are trying amalgamate the 2 'Control Panels' into one.
    You can't add it back to the classic Control Panel, but, if you paste %windir%\explorer.exe shell:::{05d7b0f4-2121-4eff-bf6b-ed3f69b894d9} \SystemIcons into a Run box you can access it.
    Use caution, there's a lot of bugs between the two settings panels in this Windows beta 10.

    Edwin - Thanks. I tried it in run -- it works well. Even works as a .bat file.

    @Brink's added it to his custom right click context menu:

    'Personalize (classic)' context menu - Add in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
