    Anyway to get the old control panel back?


    I've been wanting the old control panel back in Windows 10 and I'm wondering if anyone knows how? And it doesn't have to but I would like the old windows update back in it also. All help appreciated. My WVN is Version 2004 (OS Build 20161.1000)

    Right-click on the Start icon and select Search.

    Enter control

    The "classic" Control Panel will be the top result.

    Pin it to your Taskbar, or Start.

    You can control Windows Updates similar to the way Windows 7 could by using the Windows Automatic Updates Manager , or the Windows Update MiniTool.

    I've done as mentioned but the Windows Update is gone from it. There's a few things easier in it than in Settings.

    I have tried to open classic control panel and it barely changed anything, I'm sorry for wasting your time.

    Now you're saying it "showed up", but?

    Clicking on the search result (it's a big blue square labeled "Control Panel app") opens the "classic" (looks like the Windows 7 version) Control Panel.

    You can add it back with Winaero Tweaker (and also add it to right click desktop context menu)

    Also switch control panel view to small icons.
