    Not pinning to start


    The only icon I am having difficulty with is the "control panel" icon. When I click pin to start everything goes as planned except the icon will not appear in start. I have pinned and un-pinned multiple times. I have even tried to drag it over. No luck. I can pin any other app.

    Hi, create and test a shortcut as per the first picture
    https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/4...dows-10-a.html
    It should have the appropriate icon.

    Test it (double click).

    Rt click it and you can pin to start as a tile.

    (Other ways to open the CP: Windows key + X, click Control Panel works, Windows key + R, control panel, Type 'contr' in the Cortana search field
    for example).

    I prefer this using Classic Shell (free):
