    They are still there in 1709 - what's missing is any direct link to open them from Settings or Control Panel. Where they used to be, 1709 now has links to the Settings version of those pages. But you can still open the Control Panel version if you know the CLSID.

    @Snappy Phoenix, for this particular page create a shortcut to...

    explorer shell:::{17cd9488-1228-4b2f-88ce-4298e93e0966} -Microsoft.DefaultPrograms\pageDefaultProgram

    ...or use Winkey+R and run it.

    For any others, see...

    Thank you, @Bree, I didn't know that was still accessible. :)

    It's portable so runs without installing.
