    Looking for the syntax to create a shortcut to open the new Win 10 Action Center (Winkey+A). Thanks

    Hi, I assume you've searched and found nothing.. for example, what you're looking for is not in these:
    How To: Open Windows 10 Settings Using Shell Commands | Windows 10 content from SuperSite for Windows
    List of shell commands in Windows 10
    Complete List Of Shell Commands And CLSIDs For Windows 10

    - although these may be of interest for reference...

    Ok, here's a way using Autohotkey.

    Create a file, say NCentre.ahk containing
    Winactivate, ahk_exe explorer.exe
    Send #a

    Compile it (to create an exe file) - easy- 1 click when you have autohotkey

    Create a shortcut to it.

    (Note: I'm not sure here how to make sure this reliably sends the keystrokes to the correct process- probably needs further thought)

    Thanks for the tips, folks. The Nircmd utility, and a batch file, seems to be an alternative to my earlier quest for a shortcut.
