You may be familiar with some of the shortcuts to quickly open een specific page in the Window Settings (Control Panel) by using the Windows+R combination and pasting a short text.

For example: Press the Windows Key + R, and type this in the upcoming window "ms-settings:themes" to open the Theme settings.
