    I never use the list in start anymore, using the keyboard is easier for me

    Anyway, here's a few work arounds till windows puts it back, which I'm betting they will

    Hit the windows key, type the letter c, that should bring up control panel right off, if not continue spelling it till the applet appears, should be just one or two letters.

    Just hit enter, I think once you do this a few times it will become something you prefer over finding it in the start menu

    Or;

    Hit the windows key, type till the control panel icon comes up, right click, hit

    pin to task bar, then you save a step

    No need hitting the windows key at all, it’s right there in the tray all the time.

    I tried right clicking and pinning to start menu, but that didn’t seem to do anything, pinning to task bar was my next choice, now it seems the best choice.

    Last choice for me would be creating a keyboard shortcut;

    Right click on the desktop, hit shortcut, the target believe it or not is;

    control panel

    Create the shortcut, then right click it, hit properties and make your keyboard shortcut with any letter you want.

    I’d go with the task bar option

    I hope that helps, good luck!
