    Mustafa,

    You can create shortcuts for these with these locations.

    Flash Player Settings Manager = C:\Windows\SysWOW64\FlashPlayerApp.exe

    Mail Setup - Outlook = explorer "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15\MLCFG32.CPL"

    The Office15 folder in this path will vary depending on what Office version you have installed, so you may need to change this for what you have instead. Office15 was for my Office 2013.

    I can't find any CLSID numbers for these two items.

    All I can find were for the shortcuts I posted above. You can change the icon of the shortcuts to any icon you like. You will not be able to use them to change the icon for these two items in the Control Panel though.

    You're welcome. If you haven't already seen the tutorial below, it'll help with changing the icons of other Control Panel items if you like.

    I have some problem, it is described here: shell - Add specific option in Windows Recycle Bin context menu - Stack Overflow

    Want to ask, if there exists (or it is even impossible that exists) some CLSID which means regular folder, asking this because I want to create some registry keys, for example, HKCR/CLSID/{regular folder CLSID}/shell/Action name

    Thanks!

    Hello ST3, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    I'm sorry, but your link seems to no longer work.

    Could you provide more details for what you are wanting here instead?

    I believe that Windows SideShow has been removed from Windows 8.1, thus the CLSID Key shortcut won't work. Can you confirm this? Thanks!

    Hello qbunnie, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Thank you. Yep, it's removed in 8.1. I made a note in the tutorial for this.

    Microsoft add the Start button in Windows 8.1 and Windows 2012 R2 but not in Windows 2012, and I can't upgrade it

    Do you have a solution for me ?
