How do I add the Control Panel to the Start Menu?

A. Create a New folder under the start menu you wish to have it on. (administrator or All users) Name the New folder

Control Panel.\{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D\}

Complete with the period, brackets and dashes. Once entered it will automatically be renamed to Control Panel and unlike the Settings Control Panel it will be cascading meaning all control panel applets will be shown as sub-objects.

If you have a problem, try pressing F5 to refresh the screen, or log off and on again.
