PSA: How to open specific Settings directly in Windows 10 from the Run command

With Windows 10, Microsoft has opted to move away from the traditional Control Panel in favor of a Settings screen that uses Microsoft's design language, and although most settings are now moved over, some still need to be added.

A cool feature of this evolution is the ability to call up a particular Settings page directly, using mostly easy-to-remember commands. Below are the ones we know (thanks to Sergey Tkachenko over on WinAero) that you can access through the Run command, like so:

  • Windows Key + R
  • Right click on the Start button > select Run

Currently there is no settings link to Windows Defender (found in the Update & security page) but this could be added later as the build marches toward general availability on July 29.

If we missed a particular setting, or new ones get added, let us know in the comments, or by contacting us.
