    Shortcut changes


    If you click on "System" in "Control Panel" it opens "Settings > System". If you click "Administrative Tools" in "Control Panel" and scroll down and click on "System" it opens the old view (see below). The strange part is that if you create a shortcut from "System" under "Administrative Tools" and put it on the "Desktop" it will open the old view, but if you put it in any other location other than the "Desktop" it opens "Settings > System", would someone please explain what is going on????

    :)
