    Resolved [RESOLVED] Enhanced Control Panel

    Hi,

    Some several years ago, I found an article saying how to get an enhanced 'Control panel', I've spent the past week trying to find that article.

    I seem to remember just typing-in a command, maybe in the 'Run' function (Windows + R) and a new Control Panel appeared.

    I have it on my desk-top and use it more frequently than the original Control Panel because all the tools are listed alphabetically which takes out any ambiguity.

    Anyone know what I'm talking about?
    Or better still, know where I can find the command, or what ever it is.

    I go to the SEARCH function and search Control Panel

    I then make sure the VIEW is set to Large Icon

    On the desktop does it say-> Control Panel\All Control Panel Items? If so, the above should work.

    You could check out:

    Re: Enhanced Control Panel

    Thanks Steve,

    That's exactly what I was looking for.

    For anyone else that may be interested...

    Make a new folder on your desk-top and name it anything you wish but don't enter it yet,

    Then add: .{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} and then enter.

    NOTE the dot !

    I used: Super Panel.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
    But it doesn't really matter what you call it because there will be no actual name, neither I find can I add one.
