    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.

    Hello NumbNuts, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Thank you. Tutorial updated to include this now for the Control Panel item.

    If exist a list of shortcuts for default win-x entries
    (like custom [win-x + c] for control panel in 1703)
    would be nice to see it here.

    the letters are not underlined in win-x menu.

    Hello C, :)

    Screenshot of Win+X added to the examples at the top of the tutorial to help.

    You normally won't see the underlined letters for the shortcut keys unless you press the Win+X keys to open the menu.

    If the object is to get to Control Panel quickly, Win + Pause/Break followed by the Back key is good. If the Break key is separate or absent, it will normally then be the Pause key itself instead. Of course on many laptops to engage the Pause key pressing Fn is necessary.

    So that's (at worst): Win + Fn + Pause, then Back.

    Scarcely more complicated than: Win + X, then P (though use of the Back key makes the former seem oddly indirect).

    if you want a more simplified mode
    you can use by example
    [Win + X, then X]
    if you only rename the .lnk filename from [Control &Panel] to [Control Panel e&X]
