Earlier Windows 10 version in my desktop computer was 1607.

And I recently updated to the Windows 10 creators version 1703.

In Windows 10 Creator version 1703, App and Features is added but Control Panel is removed.

enter image description here

Without using any third party application,

May I add edit/add options in Start Menu of Windows 10 Creator version 1703 so that Control Panel can be added in Start Menu?

If yes, please let me know how to do it?

  • My previous question, "How to add missing options (control panel in start menu & date format) in Windows 10 Creators update?" is put on hold. And the suggestion is "Avoid asking multiple distinct questions at once.". Therefore, I edited my previous question separated two distinct questions in two questions. However, my previous question is on hold and this question is marked as duplicate. – user725162 May 8 '17 at 21:19
  • If you have a different question, ask the question, don't edit a previous question and morph it into an entirely different question. Otherwise people are going to notice and bring the behavior to the attention of a moderator. – Ramhound May 8 '17 at 21:30
  • Use Win-X Editor to customize the menu – magicandre1981 May 9 '17 at 15:37

The only way you can add it to the start menu is by pinning it or take a shortcut and dragging/dropping into the start menu. You can't add it back like it used to be. Easiest thing would be to type Control Panel into Search, then right-click Pin to Start.

Microsoft is doing this to force you to use the "Settings" app.

Or you can replace that start menu with ClassShell http://www.classicshell.net/

  • "The only way you can add it to the start menu is by pinning it or take a shortcut and dragging/dropping into the start menu." - How is this done exactly? – Ramhound May 8 '17 at 20:19
  • I will be clear: I know how to do pin something to the start menu. The author might not know how to do so. – Ramhound May 8 '17 at 20:26
