ms-settings Commands in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

The Settings app in Windows 10 replaces the classic Control Panel. It consists of many pages and inherits a lot of classic settings. Almost every Settings page has its own URI, which stands for Uniform Resource Identifier. This allows you to open any Settings page directly with a special command. In this article, I would like to share the list of Settings pages URIs (ms-settings) available in Windows 10 versions 1709 "Fall Creators Update".

To launch the desired page of the Settings app directly, you need to do the following:

  1. Press Win + R to open the Run dialog.
  2. Type or copy-paste the desired command from the table below into the Run box. For example, use the following command to open the Colors settings page directly:
    ms-settings:colors

    windows 10 ms-settings run This will open the Colors settings page directly. See the screenshot below.

Note: Some of the pages have no URI and cannot be opened using ms-settings commands. Some pages require special hardware to be installed in your device and won't be visible without it.

These commands are not new to Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. Refer to the following articles:

Many thanks to my friend Indigo (@tfwboredom) for making this list and for assistance.
