    List of Shortcuts to Directly Open Pages in Settings in Windows 10


    The Settings app is where you can change most settings at in Windows 10. Settings will eventually replace the Control Panel.

    Almost every Settings page has its own URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) that allows you to open any Setting page directly from a command via the command prompt, Run (Win+R) dialog, address bar of File Explorer, address bar of web browser, and in scripts (ex: .bat). You can also use these commands to create shortcuts.

    This tutorial will provide you with a list of ms-settings URI commands to directly open or create shortcuts for any Settings page in Windows 10.

    To use the URI commands to open Settings pages from a command prompt or script (ex: .bat), you would need to add the Start command with a space after it in front of the URI command in the table below.

    For example, command below to open the About Settings page (System category) in command prompt:

    Start ms-settings:about

    A page that I open frequently is ms-settings:defaultapps/Choose default apps by file type. Can that be opened with one command?
