In Windows 7 I could search for a settings page like "Programs and Features" or "Device Manager" in the start menu and then right-click it to pin it to the start menu. In Windows 10 I can only pin the settings app to the start menu but not the specific pages. Is there another way?
With "Programs and features" it's almost as easy as with the modern settings app: Search for it in the desktop control panel, right-click it and click "Pin to start":
With the device manager it's a bit more complicated. First, you have to find the file . C:\Windows\System32\devmgmt.msc. Right-click on it and choose "Pin to start". This will create a start menu tile with the ugly name "devmgmt". To change this, right-click on the tile, choose "Open file path" and change the shortcut's name to something nicer (e.g. "Device manager").
It's important that (in the control panel) "Pin to start" or "Create shortcut" will only appear, if the desired setting appears in a big font (like "Programme und Features" [german for "Programs and features] and "Geräte-Manager" [german for "Device manager"] on the screenshots do).
