  1. How do I change "Open Settings" in Explorer to "Open Control Panel"


    Guys

    I'm not sure if I've posted the right at the right place, but still........ I want to know that "" How do I change the "Open Settings" found in the Computer tab of the File Explorer to "Open Control Panel" ""

    I have a screenshot of that:

    How do I change "Open Settings" in Explorer to "Open Control Panel" [​IMG]


    I want to change it because I have a habit of having that "Open Control Panel" there as in Windows 8.1 for the reason that the Settings is just an app reference to the original Control Panel and many advanced settings are referred to Control Panel.

    And I'm lazy to type "Co" everytime in Cortana to open Control Panel.

    Awaiting for replies.....

    :)

    How do I change "Open Settings" in Explorer to "Open Control Panel"

    Welcome to TenForums @Preetkaran

    We have a tutorial for that...
    Show Control Panel or Settings on Win+X Menu in Windows 10

    But I haven't bothered. Instead I found Control Panel in the Start menu's 'All apps > Windows system' and pinned it to Start. The advantage of having it pinned to Start is that a right-click on the tile shows a 'Recent' jumplist for it, all your frequently used Control Panel settings in one convenient place.

    Force yourself just one more time, then right-click on it instead of a left-click - you can pin it to Start from there too.
     
  5. Thanks for your quick reply @Bree

    Actually I was wondering to access Control Panel through File Explorer as mentioned above. Though, there are many ways of accessing Control Panel, but my question is: Can I access Control Panel this way?

    I just created a shortcut to the Control Panel on the desktop and Pinned it to the Taskbar. That way I have access to both features. Or I could use God Mode.
