On Windows 10- Instructions to open the classic ‘System’ control panel
Microsoft says the classic “System” properties Control Panel has been eliminated from Windows 10. As of the October 2020 Update (20H2), it is extremely unlikely to get to it—or is there? Here’s a shrouded order that opens the System Control Panel.
- To run the order, press Windows+R to open the Run dialog. Copy-paste the following command into the Run dialog and press Enter:
- The System Control Panel will pop right up in the entirety of its previous glory!
In the event that you miss this page and wish it was simpler to get to, you can make an alternate way that opens it. On your desktop or in any folder, right-click and select New > Shortcut.
- In the “Type Location” box, enter the command and click “Next”:
- Name the alternate way anything you want—for instance, “System.”
You presently have an shortcut that opens the System Control Panel. To change its symbol, right-click it, and select “Properties.” Click the “Shortcut” tab, click “Change Icon,” and pick whatever symbol you like.
We tried this on Windows 10’s last October 2020 Update, otherwise called 20H2. Microsoft may eliminate the System pane totally from future versions of Windows 10. Provided that this is true, this command will quit working.
