    Thanks, Shawn. I'll probably stick to accessing CP via the desktop toolbar anyway, and leave modifying the WinX menu alone in future if WinX is likely to revert to Microsoft's chosen layout with every new build.

    I just noticed on Win 10 pro build 14986 all the right click start items do not go to the correct control panel items. how annoying. They are all going to the Start->Settings menu.

    Hello Slugger,

    Here are a few tutorials below to help with some. Let me know if you need one for another item.

    Thanks Brink. My desktop is currently NOT running inside preview. I'm running build 14986 on a VM. I saved the folder %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\WinX for future builds.

    That's ok. Those will still work in all Windows 10 builds if needed.

    Possibly grave-digging, but I CAN confirm that this one works on the newest build (1703, "Creator's Update").

    I even wrote a batch script to do this entirely self-contained without needing any files downloaded - just copy and paste in Notepad, name it go.bat or anything ending in .bat and run it.

    Nifty little trick that uses the built-in certificate encoding/decoding engine so I can just embed the data inside. Shortcut data comes from a clean install of 1607, the last one to keep the legacy control panel in WinX.

    Code:
    @echo off
    (
    echo -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
    echo TAAAAAEUAgAAAAAAwAAAAAAAAEaAAwACAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
    echo AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAQAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAJMAAAAJAACgLQAAADFTUFPiilhG
    echo vEw4Q7v8E5MmmG3OEQAAAAAAAAAAEwAAAAAAAAAAAAAALQAAADFTUFNVKEyfeZ85
    echo S6jQ4dQt4dXzEQAAABIAAAAAEwAAAAEAAAAAAAAALQAAADFTUFN7LY370ZA0Tr9g
    echo bqwJkiu/EQAAAAIAAAAAEwAAAMXWDYUAAAAAAAAAABQDAAABAACgJXdpbmRpciVc
    echo c3lzdGVtMzJcY29udHJvbC5leGUAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
    echo AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
    echo AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
    echo AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
    echo AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
    echo AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAlAHcAaQBuAGQAaQByACUAXABzAHkAcwB0AGUAbQAzADIAXABj
    echo AG8AbgB0AHIAbwBsAC4AZQB4AGUAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

    echo AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
    echo AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
    echo AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
    echo AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
    echo AAAAAAAAAA==
    echo -----END CERTIFICATE-----
    )>shortcut.tmp
    certutil -decode shortcut.tmp "4 - Control Panel.lnk" >nul
    del shortcut.tmp
    move /y "4 - Control Panel.lnk" "%LocalAppdata%\Microsoft\Windows\WinX\Group2"

    Yep, this one still works in version 1703. I use it myself all the time.

    Is there any way to restore the shortcut function in this case? This was 1607,with the P of Panel underlined:

    Has anyone been able to figure out a way of doing this yet? Just updated to 1703 and been trying to edit Win+X menu then set a key to be used to open shortcuts in the list but cant seem to find any information on how to do this?

    Hello @Hawklight, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    I'm afraid not for the underlined letter.

    Put an ampersand '&' in front of the P in the shortcut filename e.g. "Control &Panel" in %LocalAppdata%\Microsoft\Windows\WinX\Group2. Restart explorer and you should have the shortcut key back.
    I've tried changing other shortcut keys but they don't seem to work but the control panel one does.
