Launch Windows 10 Settings Pages directly using these commands


  1. awesome! I needed to open the setting menu as my start menu was stuck during an upgrade – ms-settings: – thanks again for posting these.

  2. Great tutorial, just one thing. I tried creating a Windows Update context menu but when I press it it gives me this error message:
    “Explorer.EXE” “Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item”. What do I do?

  3. Never mind, fixed it. I copied your path example “C:Windowsexplorer.exe” and the quotation marks didn’t work, so I just typed it all in and now it’s working. Thank you.

  4. I am VERY frustrated with Windows 10. Just creating a desktop icon or web shortcut seems twice as difficult as it was in Win 7. I remember on any given webpage, I would right-click anywhere in the background & the pop box would prompt: “Create desktop shortcut” or icon, or what-have-you. But the fact it is – – now when I click on the background I have 2 choices: “Select all” & “print”.

    In a time when where efficiency is paramount in many positions, therefore adding more steps to do what was so simple is the absolute opposite of being efficient.

    My apologies ahead of time, if I’ve posted this in an inappropriate place. Because just searching my topic didn’t help, as it’s not easy to find “creating a web shortcut using Windows 10”, wasn’t very convenient as Cortana “ask me anything” is, in this case, useless.

    NOW, would anyone like to put it in layman’s terms how to add a WEB (not an App) shortcut to my desktop please? Thank you!

  5. When I create a shortcut in this way, it opens a blank web page, then the required setings page then closes the web page. How do I prevent this redundant web page opening?
