    How to Add or Remove Control Panel from This PC in Windows 10


    In Windows 10, there are a few different ways to find and change your settings: Settings app, Control Panel, app settings, and search. Most of the settings that you'll want to change can be found in the Settings app.

    In Settings, you can change most Windows settings, such as changing your screen resolution, adding and removing devices, personalizing the lock screen, changing the date and time, and adding user accounts.

    The Control Panel includes some additional settings that you might use less often, such as customizing the desktop.

    This tutorial will show you how to add or remove Control Panel under Folders in This PC for all users in Windows 10.

    You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to add or remove Control Panel from This PC.

    That's normal when you have turned on "Show all folders".

    However, you should still be able to use the methods in the tutorial below to remove it.
