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


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!
