Thanks Brink for the fix! I don't know which update was the culprit that destroyed the "Control Panel" link in the Win+X menu because I just discovered it. I searched and searched and couldn't imagine why I couldn't find it.
Finally did some searches online and discovered MS had been up to their #$&% tricks again.
I found your tutorial on how to "Show The Control Panel on W+X Menu" and used that to fix both mine and my wife's laptops.
When MS first screwed that up I'm sure it was discussed on here but I missed it until I went to open up my control panel tonight and it was gone. GRRR
So thanks again Brink!!
