    How to get to old control panel in W10


    Now that I've got Win10,, I was looking around and clicking on stuff to see what was under the hood, I found that you can get to the Old Control Panel like in Win 7, problem is I don't remember how I got there. Can any one help me on this? I don't particularly care for the new Settings menu in 10 but I guess if there is't enough complaints about it, I guess were stuck with it. I do like 10, there are some issues but just like with new stuff, you get bugs.

    Or you can click on the Start button and start typing Control Panel and then select it from the list.

    Or, just tell Cortana to "Open Control Panel".

    Right click on start button and choose control panel from the list. I've only had W10 for a little over a week but it's already become habit to me to right click the start button to access most of the more techy or admin related items.

    Hmm, is that why I couldn't get it to tell me a joke? Because I have to ask it verbally through a mic?

    If you have the Start button replaced by something like Classic Shell, there are 2 ways to get to the old style control panel. You can have a link to it in the Classic Shell start menu, or you can just hit win-x and choose it from there.

    Right clicking on the start button seems to have the same effect as pressing win-x. Nice shortcut I learned from this thread.

    That little trick was one of the things I did like about Windows 8...

    Wish there was a way to import it into my 7 setup.
