    Microsoft Windows 10 Home 64-bit

    So long as MS move everything to Settings, before removing Control panel, Losing no functionality, all will be good.
    Having only 1 option means we will soon get used to where everything is, rather than flitting between Control panel and settings.

    It would be OK with everything in one place. I hope they just place another Icon in Settings for the CP or for the stuff in the CP.

    I'll believe it when I see it (maybe).

    People complained about the Control Panel/Settings setup during the W8 Previews (Sept 2011).

    W8 was foisted on the public almost 3 years ago (Oct 2012).
    MS has had plenty of time to move the CP "icons" to the new phone-style Settings window.

    Oh Well

    So putting everything in one place

    Sounds to me like Control Panel, DoHHHH,
    Yes tablets,phones and PC's work in different ways,
    God have you tried to get NEARLY directly to a setting on a tablet or a phone, at least control panel would give you a shortcut

    Thanks! I have the "GodMode" already with Windows 7 - glad to see it in Windows 10 too.

    For me it doesn't matter whether it's Settings or Control Panel. But my fear is the same as with all programs or menus that have been replaced by a more modern app or menu: Such a transition always comes with a loss of features, sometimes very drastic, sometimes only minor. If this continues we will eventually be stuck with something that is not that far from the Apple environment. Locked down, limited possibilities to tweak it to your liking... just not what I've always liked Windows for.

    This has come up before, at the moment there are 62 settings in 9 places, sooner or later I will find the one I want. What's left in control panel are 44 icons, at least they are all on one page.

    Windows 10, 8.1, 7, and Vista

    In the article in the OP, I'm the one on Twitter (Rogers) with the old Windows logo as my profile picture. I started the whole discussion with Gabe Aul.

    He couldn't be more wrong and more hypocritical.

    If you've read the whole debate on Twitter, you would know that he mentions that having two implementations is not very "lean" and that having two increases "disk/mem usage".

    First of all, Microsoft started this whole "two implementations" thing in Windows 8. Why is he talking as if it were a problem that Windows had since forever? MSFT started the whole problem that they're now trying to fix. Windows 8's "Settings app" only controlled a few things, and most people were okay with that because the rest of the settings were found in the good old Control Panel. So why is MSFT continuing to change things back to the "Settings app"? Hypocrites!

    Second, what the hell does disk/memory usage have to do with the Control Panel? Is he joking? I couldn't tell.

    Either way, if they remove the Control Panel, people will complain. Just like they did when Windows 8's start menu was removed in the Consumer Preview. People complained. Microsoft didn't listen. Then we know what happened.

    So why is MSFT going back to making the SAME mistakes that they made around Windows 8's era?

    Who the hell is in charge at Microsoft?????
