Open Control Panel

How can I have Keybreeze open individual control panel items?

Specifically, can it open the system control panel? Currently, it only seems to open the control panel folder, but I can't find a way to index the items in the folder.

Here is one way to do it:

1. Open Control Panel.
2. Search for 'System'. Right-click it and click Create Shortcut. It should create a shortcut on your Desktop.
3. Move the System shortcut to a backup folder, such as C:\Users\[your name]\Documents\control_panel_shortcuts. Rename the shortcut to 'system'.
4. Press the hotkey and type 'add' as a keyword. Give the keyword a name, such as 'system - control panel'. For the target, specify the path to the shortcut, such as:

C:\Users\[your name]\Documents\control_panel_shortcuts\system.lnk

5. Save the keyword. When you press the hotkey, type it, and press Enter, it should launch that Control Panel applet.

So there is no way to index the control panel?

There should be a preset keyword to open Control Panel. If you don't have it, type add as a keyword. Then add a keyword called control panel with a target of preset:control panel.
