    "Classic View of Control Panel" in Win 10


    I'm old fashioned and it takes me a while to used to new things even if they are better. When I opened control panel in Win 7, I immediately set it so that it always showed the details selections and not general groups. Is there a method of setting so that when I open setting (which is assume is like control panel) I will see the detailed list and not just groups?

    Hello Shiflerg,

    I'm afraid that's the only view for Settings since it's designed to also be easy to use for touch.

    Starting with Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14361, Microsoft made some improvements to the Settings app based on Insider Feedback. The navigation pane is now white in light mode or black in dark mode and we have added a small block of color (which is same as the accent color of your profile) to highlight what Settings page you are on. Clicking anywhere on the Home button at the top left takes you to the Settings homepage. And have made some other polish improvements, including slightly increasing the size of the page name text.

    Update:

    Starting with Windows 10 build 16199, Microsoft has made some changes in Settings:
    • Broadcast using game-only audio: Under Settings > Gaming > Broadcasting, you can now choose “Per-app audio”¯ to broadcast using only the game’s audio to Beam as opposed to the audio for your entire PC.
    • Audio settings is now Game DVR in Game bar: We have renamed the Audio settings page under the settings in Game bar to be Game DVR. All Game DVR settings from the general gaming settings page has been moved to be under Game DVR. Per-app audio settings is also included here as well.
    • Settings > System > About now integrated with System Health: The About Settings page has been simplified to be accessible to all customers. In addition to the overall UX cleanup, we have also added a health section that pulls in information from the Windows Defender Security Center so you can see your system health at a glance.
    • Tips and Videos in Settings: To help you learn more about your options, we’re starting to add tips and videos to Settings.
    • Expanding Storage Sense’s abilities: During development of the Windows 10 Creators Update, we added the ability to automatically free up space using Storage Sense.
