Windows Insiders may have noticed this with the latest builds of Windows 10 Insider Preview. The classic Control Panel is becoming more and more discreet. For example, right-clicking on the Start Menu has been removed.
In addition, this old control panel is being stripped of some tools that have been moved to the more modern Settings application. This is the case with the tools for searching and solving problems that no longer appear there.
This dedicated section can now be found in the settings for update and security (Troubleshooting). Microsoft is talking about a migration of these tools.
All this reinforces the feeling that the Control Panel – as a desktop application – will eventually disappear. If his code is still present in the Creators Update, it’s not sure it will be the same with the Redstone 3 codename update next fall.
Would removing the old control panel be a loss to you?
