    How to Add All Tasks to Control Panel in Windows 7, 8, and 10


    You can use Control Panel to change settings for Windows. These settings control nearly everything about how Windows looks and works, and you can use them to set up Windows so that it's just right for you.

    All Tasks is a list of all available Control Panel tasks for your PC.

    This tutorial will show you how to add All Tasks (aka: God mode) to the Control Panel for all users to open it from in Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10.

    You must be signed in as an administrator to add or remove All Tasks for the Control Panel.



    EXAMPLE: All Tasks and All Tasks in Control Panel (icons view) and Control Panel (category view)

    As a test, open a command prompt, and run the commands below one at a time to see if one may work instead for you. I'll update the tutorial to use the command that works for you.

    start shell:::{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

    OR

    control

    Do you mean the current .reg file now works for you, or only the commands above work?

    Good morning @Brink

    Question about this All Tasks control panel shortcut....you create a GUID {D15ED2E1-C75B-443c-BD7C-FC03B2F08C17} to access the applet but there is already a GUID {ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} that already references All Tasks and just needs a Shell-Open-command subkey with value explorer.exe shell:::{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}. Why did you create a new GUID rather than use the existing entry?
    Thanks!
