It has been over eight years since Microsoft released for the first time with Windows 8 the new settings screen. When the Windows 10, h Microsoft stated that it intends to include the Control Panel until it is deployed with all its options, and the Settings application is improved.
After Windows 8, h Microsoft had brought in the Settings application only the basic options for customizing the operating system and setting up the device, while maintaining the Control Panel, for those looking for advanced features.
The Control Panel is packed with gadgets that allow you to configure and control the operating system. Provides a quick way to get information about your system, including processor, memory, manufacturer, system type, and more.
In Windows 10 Build 20161, sent to Insiders, there was a new Start menu and the Microsoft started redirecting the "System" page of the Control Panel to the Settings page located in the area Settings > System> About.
There, if you click the "Copy" button, you will be able to copy the device name, processor, memory, device ID, product ID, system type, and pen / touch information.
OR Microsoft does not intend to bury Control Panel any time soon, but there are plans to replace Control Panel in Settings. There are still several functions which the Microsoft must be passed to Settings before deleting it completely. For example, the Settings application does not have a corresponding page for "Additional Power Settings" (Additional Power Settings), which is still opened via the Control Panel.
It is also worth noting that relocation is not going to be a short-term change. The control migration will be done gradually and the individual pages will be redirected when the settings are completed.
In one post on the Windows blog, Brandon LeBlanc, Program Manager for Windows Insider, said: "If you rely on settings that only exist in Control Panel, please comment and tell us what those settings are."
The control panel, however, will remain accessible to Windows 10 for the year 2021.
