The Complete List of MS-Settings Shortcuts to Windows 10 Settings Applet

8

The Settings app in Windows 10 is your new centerpiece that is on the way to replace the classic Control Panel in previous Windows. It has a lot of useful individual settings applets for all sorts different things you need to change and adjust to make the Windows environment that fits your needs. Almost all these individual settings can also be directly accessed through a shortcut key namely ms-settings URI. If you know the ms-settings URI to a specific setting you can use that info to create a shortcut icon on your desktop for easy access.

Right-click an empty space on your desktop and select New → Shortcut,

Create Shortcut - 1

Type in the name of the individual setting’s shortcut key and click Next.

Create Shortcut - 2

Give a name and done.

Now let’s take look the list of the shortcut key names for each individual setting in Settings app.

There are a few settings that I couldn’t figure out what ms-settings URI should be using. So if you now, please do share in the comment.

    • Good question. But unfortunately, I don’t think it’s possible. MS-Settings is to launch the Applet in the Settings app but not to set any values. You will need to look elsewhere like PowerShell to make that happen.
