How to Create Administrative Tools Shortcut (and More)

In this post, we will see the steps to create an Administrative Tools shortcut in the Windows 10 desktop. But remember that the steps are the same for creating a shortcut on File Explorer.

Here, we will also see the steps to add Administrative Tools to Start menu (as tile) or taskbar (as shortcut). Let us begin.

Create Administrative Tools Shortcut

Right-click on your desktop’s blank area. Hover your mouse over New. Hit Shortcut, which you can find under Folder.

In the Create Shortcut pop-up, type control admintools. Hit the Next button.

Now, provide the name for the shortcut as per your liking if you don’t like the suggested name. Click on the Finish button.

Add Administrative Tools to Windows 10 Taskbar or Start Menu as Tile

Open Start menu. Type admin. Now, in the right pane, you can see Pin to Start and Pin to taskbar options.

Hit the former if you want to add Administrative Tools to the Start menu as tile. Hit the latter if you want to add Administrative Tools to the taskbar.

Note: to unpin from the taskbar, check this guide. For Start menu, click here.
