    Is there a way to make the Control panel appear in the start menu?

    Good day all, I'm wondering if there is a way i can add Control Panel to my start menu in the same area where Settings is currently located.

    Thanks for your time.

    One guy asked the same question, but it turned out he wanted the list of CP in Start Menu.
    I hope you don't mean that either.

    Go to All apps > scroll down to alphabet W > open Windows System > right click at Control Panel > Pin to Start.

    Hello hishighness420, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    You could use the method in the tutorial below to replace one of the default Start list folders with the Control Panel instead.


    The target locations for the Control Panel to use is below.

    (Control Panel)
    %windir%\explorer.exe shell:::{5399E694-6CE5-4D6C-8FCE-1D8870FDCBA0}


    (Control Panel All Tasks)
    %windir%\explorer.exe shell:::{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
