Microsoft will fully replace Control Panel with “Settings” in future Windows 10 builds

Windows 10 logoWindows 10 is as much an exercise in efficiency as anything else. A single operating system that runs on every conceivable device means that Microsoft has much less complexity to manage and support, and they can concentrate on making a single platform as powerful and easy to use as possible. That’s the dream, of course.

And so it should come as no surprise that one of the least efficient aspects of Windows 10 will be addressed at some point. Today, Windows 10 has a much more user-friendly Settings app that provides access to some of the most-used configuration options. At the same time, the old-style Control Panel still exists, in all of its Windows 7-like glory. Control Panel tends to offer a deeper dive into various settings, and the Settings app typically refers to the Control Panel whenever more options are available there, but it remains a disjointed and potentially confusing setup.

Microsoft will fully replace Control Panel with “Settings” in future Windows 10 builds

According to Microsoft Windows Insider guru Gabe Aul and Senior Program Manager Brandon LeBlanc, Control Panel will eventually be going away, deferring to the Settings app. The discussion happened over on Twitter, and here are the pertinent tweets.
