Get Fast Access to System Settings

Written by IT News on 10:21 PM

You don't have to pass through Control Panel to get to the System Properties dialog box.

Hold down the Windows key and press Break to open this handy dialog box immediately.

No Windows key? Create a shortcut to Sysdm.cpl (you'll find it in the %systemroot%\System32 folder) and place it anywhere in the Programs menu. Then open the shortcut's Properties dialog box and assign it an easy-to-remember keyboard shortcut such as Ctrl+Alt+Shift+S.

Some laptop keyboards may have separate keys for Break and Pause, and you may find this dialog box opens if you hold the Windows key and press Pause.
