I took my time and tested commands/shortcuts from good old (XP) days to see which of them work under Windows 10. Some of them do, others don't, some things are new, others just changed or got axed.

Update: Added new commands and here's a good guide by howtogeek How to Run Hyper-V on Windows 8.1/10.

It's an amazing program. I won't use VirtualBox or VMWare anymore

Keyboard shortcuts to open programs:

Create a shortcut on the desktop to whatever program you want. Right click -> Properties and fill in the field there. Sadly the shortcut needs to remain on the desktop, but you can hide it.

Fun fact: If you had keyboard shortcuts for programs pinned to your Windows 7 start menu, those shortcuts still work when you update to Windows 10.

a tiny update: (because I can't edit my OP)

win + r -> %appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\AccountPictures -> ok

That folder stores your W10 avatar/account pictures

How to install language packs (manually)

First, make sure that you have the correct language pack matching your OS (32-bit or 64-bit).

win + r -> lpksetup -> ok -> install display languages - > Browse [pick the *.cab file of the MUI language you downloaded] -> Next.

Wait till it's installed. This can take a considerable amount of time (7-8 mins) and disk space. A System Restore point will be created.

To switch to the installed language pack go to

Control Panel -> Language -> Add a language (the one you just installed) -> Options -> Make this the primary language

This procedure will log you out/in and you're ready to go.

There's a detailed and thorough battery report giving useful information on battery's overall health and how much time of use you're getting between charges.

win + x -> Command Prompt (Admin) -> powercfg /batteryreport /output “C:\battery_report.html”

Open the HTML file to get a host of useful stats and data on your battery.

I totally forgot to include Windows 10 exclusive command called CompactOS

To reduce the total disk footprint, Windows 10 features a new option in the compact.exe built-in command line tool. CompactOS looks to be a nice upgrade over WIMBoot (in Windows 8.1) which had a lot of promise, but was not as effective as hoped.

In Windows 10, from an administrative command prompt, simply use the commands:

compact /compactos:query
This will query Windows to see if CompactOS is enabled or not

compact /compactos:always
This will enable CompactOS

compact /compactos:never
This will disable CompactOS

nice and usefull !

Here's one that's missing in your big list :

Code:
wiaacmgr
This will launch the embedded scanner and camera wizard, and will let you scan documents without using the software bundled with your AIO printer/scanner.

Update:

MS upgraded regedit interface in Windows 10 Creators Update:


Like always hit win+r -> regedit -> enter

Now it has a new address bar:



Hit alt+d to focus on address bar. You can copy/cut/paste in address bar.


New address bar now understands shortcuts too:

hit alt+d and type HKCR in the address bar and hit enter: It will expand HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT

HKCU will expand HKEY_CURRENT_USER, HKLM expands HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and HKU expands HKEY_USERS

I didn't see on your list using Win-X to bring up the basic setup of system tools like the original control panel, easy access to device manager, etc. not technically a list of commands, but at least a shortcut :)

Win+X (or right click on Windows icon) isn't really useful anymore. MS removed classic control panel from the list and changed programs and features to Apps and Features. To get to Programs and Features you have to go to Apps and Features first (Metro UI) (it's in the top right corner).

And classic cmd also left the win+x and File list, you have to do it old way (win+r -> cmd -> enter).






Now it's easier to access Power Options directly from the taskbar.

I thought the Classic Control Panel was replaced by "Settings", but I'm not directly in front of an updated WinX box right now. And I never used the cmd prompt from there, it was always quicker for me to stick with "muscle memory" for Win-R "cmd" :)

I never did understand why they made it so much harder to access different control panel settings....


*edit
Doing some quick research, it looks like that isn't the case. I guess I need to download Win-X Editor to have for fixing client PCs.
I also use the win-x for Computer management and Disk management, never actually used the power management there, habit had me hitting control panel, and typing "power" to get those options :)

I hate the fact that the control panel classic is missing from windows 10. My work around was simply to type in control panel in the start menu search bar and then pin the resulting control panel shortcut to the start menu quick access panel or taskbar

I think I'm unwilling to change with the times :)

I've put a shortcut to the classic control panel in my RocketDock. Works fine for me. Though it's been a while I actually had to make use of it tbh...

I understand. I don't have to hit my own control panel often at all. I do, however, have to hit my clients' on a regular basis, since if I'm at their station, it's usually because they broke something, or need something added, and repairs half of the time involve me digging into the control panel for something. If it's not that, then it's printer/scanner, or power issues, etc etc...

By the By, they actually haven't removed the Classic Control Panel from Win-X. I just pulled all the updates for a client laptop this morn, and Win-x still provides me a "Control Panel", which leads to the standard windows control panel.:toast:

There is Control Panel in Anniversary Update win+x menu. I was talking about Creators Update. They changed Control Panel to Settings, Programs and Features to Apps and Features. Power Options and Network Connections now open in Metro style.

I'd like to disable Skype and all the crap that I don't need in windows 10. I've gone through the settings and removed it from the optional program list but I still see Skype and some other executables or processes running in task manager , i'm sure there's a way
