    I totally disagree! The modern Settings app is too limited. Most advanced settings are only accessible from the classic Control Panel! If they remove it, we will probably need third-party utilities to access them! I don't trust them that they will add similar functionality to the modern app. Not until I see it with my own eyes! I insist that the end user should have the choice! Nobody forces anyone using the classic Control Panel. Anyone can set the computer with modern app or classic. Too bad you cannot do everything from the modern app, so you just have to resort to the old classic Control Panel. Besides, I prefer the nice-looking colorful icons in classic Control Panel than the colorless too-simple icons in the modern app!
    Hmm. Please name me one thing you cannot access from the Settings app. Not all things are ported over yet, but name me something that is at least not linked to the CP if need be?

    BTW, did you join the Insider program so to vote on RTM?

    The INTERFACE was designed with phones/tablets in mind. Don't tell me that you think it was designed for desktops.

    Microsoft is trying to blend two platforms that have never (and should never have) been together before. In order to make something pleasureable to tablet/mobile AND desktops users, you must ADAPT everything to the tablet interface. A desktop interface doesn't work on a tablet, so MS decided to do it vice versa, and this is what users are angry about. A tablet/mobile interface is almost ALWAYS dumbed-down/simplified/idiot-proof. Why do you think iOS is so popular?
    What adapt? What do you do different? Clicking a tile is the same as clicking an Icon. I don't have to do anything special to use Windows 10 on my desktop. I really don't see the merit in any of your arguments. I don't see the point in any further discussion either, with your attitude. I'll make no further comments and just leave you be. I don't see the point in fanning the flames.

    Well I hope they include everything in it (no sound settings - really?) and organize it better (bitlocker under settings -> system -> about Would you have guessed that? I would have thought security or devices)

    I always found it odd that Sound is in CP, for it's in the tray of the desktop. Why would I want to waste time to open CP? Probably why they left it out of Settings, however you can get to it via search in Settings. I find it easier to just WinKey/I > Tab key > and use search (below), just as I did in CP. CP it's Ctrl/F.

    Bitlocker is a system setting. Should be in system.

    Not sure if you know, but the "Sound" properties is an applet of the Control Panel.

    Control Panel > Settings.

    I feel that settings has too many sub-panels to navigate too. Feels too tablet/ipad style targeted/oriented. I prefer the CP navigation, I have it memorized pretty much. It seems silly that settings and control panel are divided when you want to change certain W10 settings, still in the RTM, strange indeed.

    If MS wanted 2 interfaces they should have Settings open up when you go "tablet mode" in 10 and have just the regular CP when your in the non-tablet setting. I still get confused at times when I navigate because I never know weither to go into Settings or into CP when I need to navigate for something. Especially since systems at work and other clients using W7 or 8.1. It's a bit frustrating.

    Good. The Control Panel should have been chucked out three years ago.

    Can you explain why you think that way? What does "Settings" have that Control Panel doesn't?

    This is precisely what I think! MSFT did just that with the "start menu/screen", why can't they do it with the Control Panel/Settings?

    What you say for sound could be said for display, for which you can right-click on the desktop. They all should be in settings regardless of convenience, as they are, well, settings.

    Bitlocker should not be under "about" no matter where it is in settings.

    Do you even know what the Control Panel really is?
    It's just a menu with symbolic links, instead of shortcuts, to 3rd party programs like JAVA, Realtek, Flash Player, system32 programs and other Windows programs scattered throughout the OS.
    It's just a menu, nothing more. Everything there, could just as well have been put in the start menu,
    they just created the Control Panel to put system settings in an uncluttered environment.
