Pin Folder Options to Start

Hey does anyone know if it’s possible to pin the “Folder Options” to Start in Windows?

I can pin it to the taskbar, but I can’t seem to pin it to Start.



Not sure what you mean - can you screenshot what you put on your taskbar?

I opened Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > File Explorer Options
And then while the window is open, right click and select Pin to taskbar.

I can’t pin it to Start though. Seems like it should be possible, I just don’t know how. I’m thinking it may even be hacky stuff, but I’m willing to dig a bit I guess. I just don’t know what it would be exactly.

This doesn’t work for me. I can pin it to the Taskbar, but it doesn’t open the options. It just opens an explorer Window.

The Solution:
Create a new Shortcut on your Desktop (or somewhere else). Make it’s command
control /name Microsoft.FolderOptions

and save it.

Now move that Shortcut to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs And you shoudl have what you wanted.

Bonus: A list with most of the other Control Panel Options and their direct Links:


Ayyy. God job, mate. That works!
