Misc Windows 10 built in Utilities


The following are locations of various programs in the Windows 10 System32 folder.  You can create shortcuts to these on your Microsoft Windows 10 computer rather than trying to figure out how to access them with the Windows 10 start menu.  Some I am sure you can't access that way. There are other programs not listed here that are in the System 32 folder that will only run from a command line.
