Easily Open Control Panel on Windows 11


Use the Start Menu

One of the easiest ways to launch Control Panel is by using the Start menu. To do so, click the Start button on your taskbar and type “control panel.” Click the “Control Panel” icon that appears in the results, and Control Panel will launch immediately.

Use the Run Menu or Command Prompt

In the "Run" box, type "control" and hit Enter.

You can also launch Control Panel from the Run menu. Press Windows+R on your keyboard, and when the Run window pops up, type “control”, and then click “OK” or press Enter. Similarly, you can open Control Panel from the Command Prompt or Windows Terminal by typing “control” and pressing Enter.

Pin It to the Taskbar

Once you’ve opened Control Panel using any of the methods described above, its icon will appear in your taskbar. If you’d like to keep it there so you can launch it from your taskbar later, right-click the Control Panel icon and select “Pin to Taskbar.” The next time you’d like to launch Control Panel, click the icon in your taskbar.

Add a Desktop Icon

You can also add a special desktop icon for Control Panel. To do so, press Windows+i to open Settings, then navigate to Personalization > Themes and click “Desktop Icon Settings.” In the Desktop Icon Settings window that opens, place a checkmark beside “Control Panel,” and then click “OK.” The icon will appear on your desktop. To launch Control Panel, double-click the desktop icon at any time. Good luck!
