Tech Hack: How to Create a Folder for All the Control Panel Tools In One Place

Shares

As we have moved in the Windows environment to Windows 7, 8 and now 10; we do need to access some features at our finger tips that are often tough to get to. One functionality that I need access to for its various tools is the Control Panel. But the way Control Panel is now segregated into different categories takes time and clicking around to get to the option you want to.

Control Panel with Categories

What if all of the tools and functionalities available in the Control Panel were in one folder in one place?  That way, I do not have to keep clicking in every category and looking in there.  I want everything in ONE place!  Here is how you do it.

  1. Create a Folder anywhere in the Windows Explorer.  I tried the Desktop, so I have ready access.
  2. Name it whatever you want.  I used a very creative name – ContPanel, but you can have fun with IloveBeyonce or whatever – but end it with the following extension: .{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
  3. Press Enter and enjoy the new folder.  The icon of the folder will change to the Control Panel icon on its own.

Here is the result.
