Change the Control Panel link into a more useful menu

You can change the "Control Panel" link into a more useful menu -- where you can pick up the item you want.

  1. Right Click on the task

  2. Choose "Properties"

  3. Click on "Advance" tab

  4. Tick "Expand Control Panel" in the list

  5. Click "Apply"

Here you are. The "Control Panel" link in "Start->Settings" is now a menu, but you can still double click on it to open the "standard" control panel view.
