    Need desktop shortcut to "Devices" in Win10


    Does anyone know of a way to put a desktop icon shortcut to "Settings > Devices" in Win10 Home? I've Googled quite a bit and have not found a way to do it.

    Hello mck,

    You could create a shortcut using the command below to open directly to the "Printers & scanners" page in Settings -> Devices. This is the default page that "Devices" opens to.

    ms-settings:printers

    If you like, OPTION THREE in the tutorial below has a list of other commands you can use to open to specific Settings pages to help.

    Perfect Brink. The ms-settings:printers shortcut works great.

    Thanks!
