During the development of the Windows 8 operating system, Microsoft decided to Introduce a new feature named Win+X Quick Link Menu, that contains shortcuts to a number of administrative tools and system functions. However, If you wish to rename or delete a given shortcut, or add additional Items to the menu, It cannot be done natively within Windows. As such, In this tutorial, I will show you how to customize the Win+X Quick Link Menu by using a third-party tool.
Before I make a start, here's what I'm referring to. When you press the Windows logo + X keys simultaneously on your keyboard, or right-click the Start button, the Win+X Quick Link Menu will appear as shown below.
As opposed to Individually navigating to each setting, everything Is available at your fingertips. However, unlike the Windows 10 Start menu, whereby you can add, rename and remove Items, It's not possible to do the same with the Win+X Quick Link Menu. Well, that Is, not until now.
I will demonstrate how to customize It, by using a neat little tool named Win+X Menu Editor, that can be downloaded from this reputable source or via the developer's website. The good thing about It, Is that It's a portable version, hence no need to Install It on your computer. So without further delay, let's get this tutorial started.
