I came across this tip the other day and thought it would be nice to share here. Windows 8 settings are spread across the OS in various nooks and crannies. How many times have you rooted around the Control Panel in search for that one setting you used a few months ago?
Wouldn’t it be nice to have it all in one place (so that you can go rooting around in only one place)? Well, Mark Kaelin shared this tip on TechRepublic (reference link below) and here it is.
You can start by opening up File Explorer. Access the View Tab and ensure that the ‘File name extensions’ and ‘Hidden items’ are checked.
Next, create a new folder on your desktop.
In the folder name, copy and paste the following string:
You can change the folder name if you wish. Just replace the “AllSettings” portion to whatever you want. “I have the power” comes to mind.
When you hit enter, the icon will change.
Clicking on your new AllSettings icon will open up a smorgasbord of settings for your tweaking pleasure (Just look at the scroll bar).
And that’s it. Enjoy!
