    Windows 10 Control Panel


    I upgraded from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit. In my CP I have items that still relate to 7. Is there anyway to remove them?

    I still have it after a clean install. As for removing it.. why? Just don't use it. You might cause more harm trying to remove it than it's worth.

    Thanks Guys, I figured out how to remove but I will just leave well enough alone. Maybe this SR1 will fix it..

    Its not a left over from Windows 7 as such. MS have left it in there for compatibility with 7. By the way, you can still use it to create drive images etc.

    SR1 won't "fix" it since it isn't a flaw. MS put it there on purpose as can be seen by its presence in clean Win10 installs and its utility in Win10.

    Why the hell would you want to remove it? I don't understand.

    If so it does not work, when I click on it nothing happens @BunnyJ that is why I wanted to remove it.

    I do not use it, I use Macrium Reflect which is a better backup and restore than the built in one. I can restore an image in less than a minute.

    In case there is some confusion here I only wanted to remove the two items that are arrowed.
