    Windows 10 commands/shortcuts/env. var.

    Keyboard shortcuts to open programs:

    Create a shortcut on the desktop to whatever program you want. Right click -> Properties and fill in the field there. Sadly the shortcut needs to remain on the desktop, but you can hide it.

    Fun fact: If you had keyboard shortcuts for programs pinned to your Windows 7 start menu, those shortcuts still work when you update to Windows 10.

    Check for Updates - Desktop Shortcut


    I've done it!!!
    Create Check for Updates in Store Shortcut in Windows 10 [​IMG]

    I have created a Desktop shortcut that brings you straight to the "Check for updates" button in Windows Update, in the Settings app.
    When you click/double click this shortcut, it will open Windows Update and all you need to do is hit the Return/Execute key.

    4. Place the shortcut on your desktop.
    5. Place the icon, somewhere where you will never move it(I have a folder extra for custom icons in my Users folder), but NOT on the desktop!
    6. Open up the shortcuts properties and click change icon.
    7. Browse to where you stored your Icon, and apply it.

    What the icon looks like:

    The only material differences are that the TenForumsTutorial assigns a more commonly-used icon for the WU shortcut & its shortcut initiates the check for WU without any further user action.

    Windows 10 commands/shortcuts/env. var.

    Humongous update. Added lots of commands (Control and System Properties) to the OP (in green and blue).
    Double/triple checked them all in Anniversary and Creators Update, everything works.
