    Right Click Windows 10 Start Menu > Control Panel ?


    Does anyone know why the Right Click on the Windows 10 Start Button to get to the Control Panel was removed? It was so simple. You could use the Windows Button and X to get to the Menu too. I had to find the Control Panel and add it to my Start Menu. How do you Click your way to the Control Panel now in the new Creator Update?

    Thank you Brum. Yes, I knew how to get to the Control Panel by doing a search, however I was just wondering why they would have removed the Control Panel from the Menu. Developers are always making these changes, it was just one of those things that you notice as someone who develops a habit of doing things a particular way.
