Is it possible to access this panel by a desktop shortcut or straightly toggle Bluetooth on/off?
It's ASUS Tablet! Read many instructions but didn't find any working.

Hello, and welcome to Eight Forums. :)

If you like, you could use the tutorial below to create a shortcut that will directly open to the Bluetooth page in PC Settings to help with this.

:arrow:Bluetooth Devices Shortcut - Create in Windows 8
Hello Brink! Unfortunately, this tutorial is not what I need. The aliases in this tutorial lead only to "generic" Windows Bluetooth control panels, not to Metro control panel (screenshot, if I'm not mistaking with the name of the touch interface).
I need this panel to turn BT on/off without a mouse click. Sometimes I disconnect mouse to use my tablet in "horisontal position" on a bed.
I searched for this in Google, but found nothing to acccess this panel from desktop alias (even don't dream any more to access the Bluetooth toggle by an alias), seems to me now that it's different systems in Windows and it's impossible because they don't cross with each other, but still hope that it's possible.

Yes, but this menu page cannot be quickly accessed. I think that there must be a way to do it.

Hello all! Found a way at last!

How to put a bluetooth on/off tile in Windows 8.1 on tablet - Do It Anyway
One technical nuance. If the language of your Windows is not UK English, you got to change the locale "en-UK" in that string:
%windir%\explorer.exe %localappdata%\Packages\windows.immersivecontrolpanel_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\Indexed\Settings\en-UK\AAA_SettingsPagePCSystemBluetooth.settingcontent-ms


If you don't know it, you can find the name in that folder, just copy and paste that string in Explorer:
%windir%\explorer.exe %localappdata%\Packages\windows.immersivecontrolpanel_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\Indexed\Settings\

Best wishes to You All! I'm glad that I tweaked that piece of ...!
