    Settings UI is ugly / CU update feedback


    I don't mind Microsoft replacing Control Panel and such with something better and more efficient. But The Settings phone like UI is so f.. ugly. What's even worse, is that MS just removed Control Panel from Win+X shortcuts, and replaced Programs and Feature with Apps and Features, which is extremely inefficient. System info window is also replaced with another inefficient About window, which I find pretty stupid.

    I predict that the next major update will get rid of File Explorer, and replace it with metro like UI, removing most of the features.

    If you open Apps and Features look at top right and there is a link to Programs and Features. After Program and Features is open look at top left and there is a link to Control Panel.

    It's true, but don't you find it weird that you have to go through phone like settings to get into normal settings? It just doesn't make sense to me..

    Brink, thanks for all the links. Lot of reading and learning in my future.

    I am just poking around on this new version.

    Two systems updated and one to go. But it will have to wait until next week. I will be at the French Quarter Festival in New Orleans all weekend.

    Any way to make Control Panel like a retractable menu like in Classic Shell from Win+X power user menu?

    When the explorer shell (what we know as "the desktop interface") has been completely deprecated (and it will be), then a phone-like UI won't be weird.
