    You CAN still access Control Panel in Creators Update


    I have been wondering about this for a little while as I miss control panel for machine reliability which shows crashes and updates not normally reported.

    But I have found a way to access Control Panel from Settings. Open settings, click or tap Apps, in Related Settings you can see Programs and Features, tap or click this, then in the top left click or tap Control Panel Home.

    Bit convoluted but it is still there which I am pleased about just not accessible from right clicking on the Start Menu Button.

    Why not Windows Key +R (run) "control.exe" without the quotes.

    Or type "cont" in search bar and it shows up.

    I have put the Create Control Panel All Tasks Shortcut in Windows 10 in my Start menu's All apps (Customize Start List Folders in Windows 10) and from there pinned it to Start. Pinned the plain-vanilla Control Panel to Start too. I now have a choice of tiles for 'Control Panel' and 'God Mode'.

    Its not actually a like button but a reputation button which is more valuable.
