Microsoft Preps Getting Rid of Control Panel

Microsoft is prepping its team by beginning the stages of removing the old Control Panel – starting with the System portion.

The System control panel, introduced back with Windows 95, allowed users to figure out important information regarding the operating system, including memory and CPU usage. Many Windows users have expressed their concern with the idea of removing it, but Microsoft continues to attempt to ease their minds about the switch.

Brandon LeBlanc, the Senior Program Manager of the Windows Insider Program, says, “if you’re looking for more advanced controls that lived in the System page in Control Panel, you can still get to them from the modern About page if you need them! There will be more improvements coming that will further bring Settings closer to Control Panel. If you rely on settings that only exist in Control Panel today, please file feedback and let us know what those settings are.”

Although the new Settings feature (which included all of the PC information needed) was included in the Windows 8 update, Microsoft kept the Control Panel for configuration uses. However, to keep everything in its place, and avoiding duplication, this seems to be a good move for Windows 10.
