Create An All Tasks Control Panel Shortcut

When viewing the native Windows Control Panel, there are a lot of Items that are somewhat buried and very difficult to locate. Moreover, unless you know exactly what you're looking for, Identifying the category they belong to, can be an arduous process. Wouldn't It be nice If you can have every Item categorized and available with a simple click of the mouse? In this tutorial, I will show you how to do just that, by creating an All Tasks Control Panel shortcut on your desktop.

Before I begin, here's what I'm referring to. Once the All Tasks Control Panel shortcut Is created and executed, a list of every Control Panel Item will be available. A snippet of this, can be seen In the Image below.

Obviously, there are a lot more Items, but I cannot possibly Illustrate the lot. The process to create the shortcut, Is extremely simple, yet very effective so without further delay, let's get this tutorial started.

Step One:
Firstly, right-click on a blank area on your desktop and select New > Shortcut as shown below.

Step Two:
In the Type the location of the Item field, enter the following command.
%windir%\explorer.exe shell:::{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

Then hit Next to continue.

Step Three:
You now need to give your shortcut a name. For the purpose of this tutorial, I've named mine Windows 10 Tips All Tasks. Hit Finish to finalize the process.

Step Four:
I've now navigated to my desktop and as you can see, the All Tasks shortcut has been created. Let's check It out by double-clicking It.

Step Five:
As expected, the All Tasks window has executed, containing every Control Panel Item. A portion of this, Is viewed In the Image below.

Last Step:
An here's another example, this time containing the Network and Sharing Center & Personalization Items.

Final Thoughts:
I'd say, this Is one of the most Impressive shortcuts that I've had the pleasure of creating. As opposed to sifting through the Control Panel's options and settings to try and locate It's Items, you now have everything available at your fingertips. Once you've created It, you'll be very Impressed so do take a few minutes of your time to do just that.
