    It can be put back, Brink will come along and post the instructions.

    In the mean time you could put the control panel icon on the taskbar.

    Type it in Cortana, or access it with File Explorer. Last one has "All Control Panel Items" with the individual list under it.

    You can also add it to the right click context menu using code below, create a txt file with .reg extension, double click to merge into the registry:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\background\shell\4.Control Panel]
    @="Control Panel"
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\background\shell\4.Control Panel\command]
    @="C:\\Windows\\explorer.exe shell:::{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"

    Just click then type "control" (or the Dutch equivalent first name of Control Panel!) - then wait until "control panel" appears on the search list, and right-click it and pin to start or whatever you want to do.
