    Thanks, Brink. Nice work. This is one of the first things I searched for after installing Windows 10.

    Any chance you could create a shortcut to toggle Tablet Mode on/off?

    If you like, you could do so from within Action Center.

    Yes, I know. But one click would be easier than two - I'm lazy.

    Also, I'm very "left-centric". I'd prefer a single-click shortcut that I can pin to Start10 and/or taskbar.

    Windows Update is deprecated in the Control Panel for Windows 10, and cannot be added back.
    Yes, sure can if you want to:
    To add to Control Panel:
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{36eef7db-88ad-4e81-ad49-0e313f0c35f8}]
    "System.Software.TasksFileUrl"="Internal"
    "System.ApplicationName"="Microsoft.WindowsUpdate"
    "System.ControlPanel.Category"="5"
    @="@%SystemRoot%\\system32\\shell32.dll,-22068"
    "InfoTip"="@%SystemRoot%\\system32\\shell32.dll,-22580"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{36eef7db-88ad-4e81-ad49-0e313f0c35f8}\DefaultIcon]
    @="shell32.dll,-47"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{36eef7db-88ad-4e81-ad49-0e313f0c35f8}\Shell]
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{36eef7db-88ad-4e81-ad49-0e313f0c35f8}\Shell\Open]
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{36eef7db-88ad-4e81-ad49-0e313f0c35f8}\Shell\Open\Command]
    @=hex(2):63,00,6f,00,6e,00,74,00,72,00,6f,00,6c,00,2e,00,65,00,78,00,65,00,20,\
      00,2f,00,6e,00,61,00,6d,00,65,00,20,00,4d,00,69,00,63,00,72,00,6f,00,73,00,\
      6f,00,66,00,74,00,2e,00,57,00,69,00,6e,00,64,00,6f,00,77,00,73,00,55,00,70,\
      00,64,00,61,00,74,00,65,00,00,00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ControlPanel\NameSpace\{36eef7db-88ad-4e81-ad49-0e313f0c35f8}]
    @="Windows Update"
    To Remove from Control Panel:
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{36eef7db-88ad-4e81-ad49-0e313f0c35f8}]
    
    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ControlPanel\NameSpace\{36eef7db-88ad-4e81-ad49-0e313f0c35f8}]

    Hello Dino (@topgundcp),

    Thank you, but I posted that from a while back, and since had a tutorial for it. Although it does only open Windows Update in Settings from the Control Panel.

    Best way to create a shortcut for Windows 10 Update is to use the windows command for windows update in a shortcut- C:\Windows\System32\control.exe /name Microsoft.WindowsUpdate.
