How to? Run the control panel from a TCC session...

I am trying to do something in the control panel app that appears to requite administrator privileges. I revived the administrator account in Windows 10 but nothing in the resulting account works - particularly the "Start" button which does absolutely nothing when clicked on with either the left or right mouse button. So it would appear that I need to run the control panel from an elevated TCC session in my normal user account (I know how to do that) but I don't know how to run the control panel program once I am there.

Here,
Code:
c:\windows\system32\control.exe
works from TCC, elevated or not. (I don't really need the full path.)

Here's another example which opens a particular Control Panel item.
Code:
control /name Microsoft.DateAndTime
[Google "Canonical Names Control Panel Items"]
You can also open some CP items via their .CPL file; for example
Code:
control timedate.cpl
