Control Panel - Alternate "view"

Recommended Posts

 

I accidently discovered this different 'view' of the Control Panel. Open Control Panel > click on the 'large icon' view from the Category drop-down menu > then type "c", without the quotes, upper or lower case, in the Search box and Control Panel now appears with clickable links beneath each Category. [looks like your Favs if you use Bookmark Wizard) It's just too easy and for me - extremely helpful.

 

There were times when I'd open Control Panel, knowing exactly what I wanted but not sure which Category it was in. The links are super handy and often there are more links to issues than expected or at least more than I expected....

 

I dug around a bit n' didn't find this posted so hopefully I'm not being redundant.

Create a new folder on your desktop.

 

Rename the folder:

 

GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

This will change to an icon;

that acts as a shortcut to the control panel links you've found.

 

Nice one though

You don't even have to call it god mode, as long as you keep the string intact you can give it any name you want

I kind of liked God Mode so never changed it.

It's gratifying to know that some folks were helped by the 'tip' n' I thank-you for those replies :)

 

it seems, to me anyway, that going through the various steps to put a 'g-d mode' folder on the desktop is....well, a tad much when simply opening Ctrl Panel n' putting a 'c' in the search box will do the trick.

 

Maybe it's because of where i have Ctrl Panel located - just under the Start button - that way I'm able to see the jumplist as well. i've got Ctrl Panel stashed in a few other places simply for my convenience.

 

After all, isn't all this about 'my convenience' :lol:
