With the release of Windows 10 20H2, Microsoft has hidden access to the System of the old control panel and redirected users to the recently updated "About" settings page.
The Control panel System gadget was first added to Windows NT 3.51 from Windows 95 onwards. It provided information about the installed version of Windows, the operating system bit type, the computer name, the workgroup, the CPU, and the memory.
As of July, Microsoft had updated the "Info" settings page to include most, but not all, of the information on the System page.
With Windows 10 20H2, Microsoft prevents users from accessing the Control Panel SYSTEM, and if anyone tries to open it, they will be taken to the About page above.
By testing one modern disk management tool, his choice refresh rate and the redirection of "Programs and Features" to the settings "Applications and Features", we can see the gradual removal of the old Control Panel.
On the one hand it may be good because Windows 10 is a mess of configuration settings here and there, but on the other hand Microsoft should run the matter a bit. We've been hearing about this transfer since the day Windows 10 was released, and we're still in the beginning.
If you now want to access the old System you will need to create a shortcut that opens the application. Follow these steps:
Right-click on the desktop and select New> Shortcut, as shown below.
When the Create Shortcut window opens, copy and paste the following
Then click the Next button.
Now you need to name the shortcut. Name the System and click the Finish button.
This will get a shortcut on your desktop. With a double click on the shortcut you will be able to reopen the System in the old control panel.
Note that at some point Microsoft may remove the control panel completely, which makes the shortcut not work. So it would be good to adapt to the changes in Microsoft, even if you do not like them.
