    Most of the settings you'll want to change in Windows 10 are in Settings. Settings is organized into the separate System, Devices, Network & Internet, Personalization, Apps, Accounts, Time & language, Gaming, Ease of Access, Privacy, Update & security, Mixed reality, and Cortana categories. You can click/tap on a category to view and change more settings for that category.

    While you must be signed in as and administrator to be able to add or remove the Settings context menu, all users will be able to use the context menu.
