How to Create a Shortcut that Opens Directly to the "Settings Menu" in Windows Media Center
This will show you how to download or create a shortcut that will open directly to the Settings Menu in Windows Media Center in Windows 7 or Vista.
Windows Media Center is not available in Windows 7 Starter and Windows 7 Home Basic editions.
The N and KN editions of Windows 7 have all the features that normally come with each individual Windows 7 edition, except for Windows Media Player 12 and related programs, such as Windows Media Center or Windows DVD Maker.
The N editions of Windows 7 allow you to choose your own media player and software required to manage and play CDs, DVDs, and other digital media files. If you choose to use Windows Media Player 12, downloading it, along with related software, is free.
