I stumbled on a list I'd like to share. Solved

    I stumbled on a list I'd like to share.

    If you're a control freak, like me, you may be interested in this. I found it completely by accident. Maybe its not a secret, but I've never heard of it. 234 setting commands listed alphabetically. I have yet to figure a way to save the list as a readable/search able file. It is not friendly in any other but the "search" environment. IOW, copy and paste will not retain the correct directions/link content.
    Navigate to the app data folder in your user folder (root directory/users/ [YOU] and do a search for the word "classic".
    You will need to unhide the folders to find and search them.

    I have some Bad News and some Good News.

    Bad News: all I get is a list of all files with 'classic' in their name.

    Good News: all I get a list of all files with 'classic' in their name - meaning I now know what it is you've found. The only remaining puzzle is why it displays like that for you and not for me.

    All the files you have found are in a single folder:
    (depending on your install language, this may be 'en-US', etc...)

    This appears to be the index Cortana refers to for 'settings' if you type something into the Search box next to Start. The names you see in your list, I see in the properties for each file on its Details tab. The files themselves contain xml that launches the appropriate action if I double-click on them.

    ...and I can't get the search to open looking like yours! In fact, although I searched "classic", I do not see the word anywhere until I click to open one then the whole structure changes.

    It can and only looks like the capture as posted in the compiled "search" list...hands off the keyboard/mouse.

    Ah, that's because my screenshot isn't the result of a Search, I navigated to the folder. Try typing this into File Explorer's address box...
    ...you should see a single folder (en-US, en-GB or similar). The files with 'classic' in their name are all in that folder, what do you see if you open that folder?

    Yes, OK, opening the folder directly gets you the list as you captured it, but the file names mean nothing to me. I can open them from the search pane as they have useable names there.
    I went one step further; checking all 230+ shortcuts (searched for by "classic"), doing a right click and sending a shortcut to everyone of those files to my desktop. Move them all to their own folder and you have a GOD MODE II (so to speak-"All Items sorted by Verb"
