    I haven't seen a way to add icons to items in the Win+X menu.

    If you like, items in the Start menu All Apps list will have icons on its items.

    I hate the fact that the control panel classic is missing from windows 10. My work around was simply to type in control panel in the start menu search bar and then pin the resulting control panel shortcut to the start menu quick access panel or taskbar

    I think I'm unwilling to change with the times *Smile Rename Shortcuts in Win+X Quick Link Menu in Windows 10 :)

    Hello realista87, *Smile

    Shortcuts for the Win+X menu won't work unless they are hash files. The hashlink.exe file is a command tool that will make the shortcut a hash file.

    The shortcuts need to be in the 1/2/3 group folders when you use the hashlink.exe file (command) on them, or they will not work or be in the Win+X menu.
