Thank you Shawn. :D

I was looking for a shortcut to the PC Settings. I can't believe Microsoft made it so difficult to get to PC Settings quickly. :confused:

They really do make it confusing. In my All-Users Start Menu folder
("C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs")
there's a shortcut that is called "PC Settings" and its icon looks the same as the Settings charm.
But it actually opens the "Control Panel" folder on the Desktop!

If i were to delete the shortcut in programdata/windows/xxx/PC Settings would this still work? Im trying to remove it from my start screen yet still have access to it. I deleted the shortcut previously but found out not long thereafter that I couldnt access it even via the link in the charms/metrosidebar thingy.

Hello Kevin,

If you delete the PC settings shortcut in the Start screen folder location, it would break PC settings. The shortcut will need to remain there.

If you like, you could unpin PC settings from the Start screen to only have it on your Apps screen.

Hrm. probably beating a dead horse but their is no way to move the location the system checks for said file or anything like that then?

I already have everything unpinned from the actual "start" menu as I dont use it whatsoever. When/if I said start menu I meant apps list. Ultimately id like it to have just "apps" of the "i personally installed them myself" variety :p I have managed to remove every single solitary windows pre installed app/metro app bar this one. If i were able to access it only via charms bar I would be elated.

If we're being honest - ill likely never use it again but having the link broken would drive me nuts since im ocd/anal ESPECIALLY about my pc lol.

Aaaanyhow, it is what it is i suppose. I know im not alone so if their was a reasonable way, id imagine it would have found its way here by now.

Thanks for trying to help anyhow. Your the best :p

Not that I'm aware of. Removing the "PC settings" shortcut from the Apps screen will completely break "PC settings" everywhere. :(

That is absolutely fvcking ridiculous. I contacted Microsoft Support about this - there is absolutely no way to get rid of that shortcut without breaking the 'PC Settings' screen entirely.

You can't access it from anywhere else in the entire operating system unless that shortcut is in your start menu.

Microsoft is a complete joke. That is not how a professional operating system should work. A vital function of the computer should not hinge upon the existence of a shortcut in your start menu. There is no fvcking reason for it.

This is a ridiculous design oversight.

Like an earlier poster, I have already removed everything from my 'Start Menu' screen. It's completely empty, and I never use it - the start menu button opens directly to my (mostly empty) 'Apps' screen.

I would like to remove the icon from the 'Apps' screen, because it does not belong there. Like that other commenter, if I were able to access it only via charms bar, I would be elated.

I called the 'Apps' screen the Start Menu because its contents are, for me, mostly pulled from...

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

...and therefore the 'Apps' screen, to me, is the Start Menu - Microsoft just renamed it for some reason.

Yeah, it would be nice, but removing any of the modern app shortcuts from the "Apps" screen will break them. :(

And that's absurd. I shouldn't need to have a shortcut in my start menu to not break my computer...

That's the only 'app' I use, because I am forced to, because there is no other way to change those settings or access that information. Couldn't they have just put that stuff in with the regular control panel, where everything else like that is?

No, that would have made too much sense.

Actually...I guess I could just remove the shortcut, and only replace it when I need those functions. I shouldn't have to do this, but it's the only way I can think of to get around this awful oversight.
