Activate common Desktop Icons on Windows 10 and Server 2016

I still like to have the icons for ‘Network’ and ‘This PC’ on my Desktop on Windows. In Windows 10 and Server 2016, this setting is not so easy to find. It can be accessed via Settings -> Personalization -> Designs -> Themes -> Desktop Icon Settings.

Another way is to execute the following command:

rundll32.exe shell32.dll, Control_RunDLL desk.cpl,, 0

The setting can also be found via the desktop search by typing in the term “Common”.
