    Settings App vs. Control Panel?


    I've tried using the Settings App, but I always seem to end up using Control Panel?

    Is it just me, or is the Settings App just a partial duplication of CP?

    I agree, I always use the CP except to try and remove apps that came with 10, which I am having issues doing.

    Yes, I don't understand why it has two separate "control panels" as if windows 10 was composed of two OS's xD
    anyway, metro settings app has unique settings, like notifications, WU, etc,

    one day the control panel will be completely gone.


    but microsoft has to take baby steps to avoid problems.

    and other companys will have to convert their control panel files to work with the settings app.
