    In my opinion, the new settings interface is quite slow. Microsoft should focus back on the Control Panel.

    "Slow" is not an issue with the app. It's hardware related and other processes going on in the PC.

    Will we just lose the Start Menu GUI access to the control panel? Would win+r > control still work, or will the executable be removed too?

    In addition, a one setting model for all devices would need to be touch friendly. The Control Panel wasn't, so Settings was born.
    Was Settings stillborn? I was just starting to get used to it and now all of a sudden Settings disappeared from my 10130 installation. I had to use Cortana to search for it. It seems like Microsoft is trying to hide all the system utilities.

    You should be able to open Settings using either option below as usual in build 10130.

    Thanks, pressing the Windows + I keys worked for me. No doubt in time I will set up my Windows 10 desktop with my favourite utility shortcuts.

    The Control Panel's speed is also related to hardware and other processes...so he's saying that compared to the Control Panel, Settings is slower

    The new settings are.. ah new. They get the same job done and that's all that really matters.
