You know that power menu when you right click the start button. Is there anyway to add extra links to that, such as a link to Windows Update?

Probably want to take a look in "C:\Users\(Your user name)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WinX" and the registry, probably better off just getting a third party utility though to simplify it.

Love Win + X.

 

Yes, I suppose a link to Windows Update would be handy. Have to add one now.

I just have the Control Panel pinned to the Taskbar, then I have my 10 most used Control Panel items pinned within that JumpList.

With Windows Update at the top.
