    Here's a handy tip to let you quickly access Control Panel via File Explorer.

    Although the Settings app is the new experience to customize and configure Windows 10, you still need to use Control Panel, because not every option has been migrated to Settings.
    The only problem is that on every new feature update for Windows 10, Microsoft makes it a bit more difficult to access Control Panel. For example, in the past, you could quickly open the experience from the ribbon menu in File Explorer and using the Power User menu (Windows key + X). But now those options are no longer available.
    However, if you're still using Control Panel on a regular basis, it's possible to add a quick access button on "This PC" inside File Explorer by modifying the Registry.
    In this Windows 10 guide, we detail the steps to include access to Control Panel inside This PC in File Explorer.

    Why the elaborate exercise in registry editing ?

    What's wrong with creating a CP shortcut at the desktop ?

    Start button > scroll down to alphabet W > open Windows system > right click at control panel > click More > click Open file location > right click at Control Panel shortcut > click Send To > click Desktop (create shortcut).
