    Control panel folder with subfolder list, in start menu - old style

    Is it possible to add this kind of Control Panel shortcut (like in screenshot below), with subfolder/subitem list, to windows 10, without installing Classic Shell or similar programs?

    I'll venture a guess but from my understanding you can't. The only way is to install Classic Shell or a similar tool.

    You can create a folder called "Control Panel" and put it in

    %appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs (for one user) or
    %ProgramData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs (for all users).

    Then go to control panel, right click on the things you want and select create shortcut. It will prompt you to create the shortcut on the desktop. Once you have created the shortcuts copy them into the folder you made.

    That will show it under all apps.

    Search (Win/S) for 'control panel', should see Control Panel Desktop, right click it and pin to Start, or Taskbar - I somehow got it on my Desktop, but I forget how I see this

    Have Control Panel reside in the 'Most used' list and populate the 'jump list' with the items you want.
