Microsoft continues to dehydrate Control Panel. In the foreseeable future, this module, which is so familiar to Windows 7 users, may disappear completely from the operating system.
We’ve known for a while now that Microsoft is preparing to undo the classic Control Panel, and it looks like the software giant has finally really made the move. In the latest Windows 10 feature update, some items have already been moved from the Control Panel to the Engine Compartment, meaning that the old Windows component has started to wither, and now Microsoft is moving even further. Links to the Windows Control Panel no longer open on regular pages, but redirect the user to the Engine, and external apps and shortcuts in Explorer that used to point to the Control Panel now lead to the Engine . Executing the Control Panel doesn’t hit most users, but those who have switched from Windows 7 to Windows 10 are unhappy with it. Previously, Control Panel was the general setting for Windows, and old Windows 7 users were very used to it. They have mostly switched to Windows 10 due to the end of support for Windows 7 in January, and this new switch now makes their lives even more difficult.
