    The very fact you need a support link shows it's a poorly thought-through design. It should be click-click-click. and done.

    Hence why you can customize it to how you want instead of using the default "Settings".

    @dictum,

    Were you able to get the password changed?

    Aside from Brink's 'Create Control Panel' shortcut, you can easily do same and more from Start Menu/ Windows System (open file location will let you make a desktop shortcut vs Tile, like me) -

    I managed to pin it to the quick start menu (I think that's what it's called). What an illogical design, it should be there to begin with, or the Start menu.
