    The default Windows Start button yes, but not if you have replaced it with a Classic Shell Start button. Right clicking that only gives you access to Classic Shell's settings and Windows Explorer.

    vgchat, thanks for the screenshot and for the win-x info, I surely did not know this and it's much easier than going through all the other stuff.

    Right clicking by the start menu is how I do it. I love that power users menu. It is the same thing as WindowsKey+x

    But if you use Start10 then you can tell it to display the Win+X context menu on right click of the Start button.

    I just discovered you can do the same thing in Classic Shell.

    If you chose to have the desktop on the taskbar, then it is a single left-click away to the old control panel.

    I fiddled around until I found the classic settings for adding/disabling Desktop Icons:

    In Settings->Personalization->Themes:

    Click image for larger version.

    That brings up the Classic Icons panel:

    Click image for larger version.

    And then you can even put "This Computer" back on the Desktop.

    I don't have a Microphone but Cortana responds pretty well with just typed in queries.

    Right clicking by the start menu is how I do it...
    Bingo!
    The easiest way to access the old style control panel (and other goodies)
    is simply to right click the start button.
