How to launch Settings panel on Windows 10

In Windows 10 there are two kind of management apps:

  1. Control panel – old fashion / classic app we all know
  2. Settings – the new way of configuring Windows (a XAML app)

Prior to Windows 8, running control panel applets was about pasting strange GUIDs or Control.exe with parameters in RUN dialog.

In Windows 8/8.1/10 there are more user-friendly commands. For example you can start Windows Update app via RUN dialog:

ms-settings:windowsupdate

This will start Settings >Security > Windows Update XAML app.

You can find a table of all commands here:https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/xaml/Dn741261.aspx
