Windows 10: Create a Desktop Shortcut to "Windows Update"

Since Windows 10 is not using Control Panel anymore for Windows Updates, it is not that simple to create a shortcut anymore. To create a shortcut to Windows Update, use the following procedure:

  • Right-click on the Desktop and choose New > Shortcut
  • In the "Location of the item" field, type
    ms-settings:windowsupdate
  • Click Next
  • In the "Name of the shortcut" field, type Windows Update
  • Click on Finish
