    Windows doesn't change that much ... the way we use it does. Most of the programs and cmdlets will still be there, you just have to DIY. Microsoft, as a business has to move forward ... they have to do the same thing car companies do - change the covering.

    The drive train is pretty much the same.

    Here's a treat: unzip the folder, unblock it and have fun with the pseudo Control Panel. I have more shortcuts to build, but this is as far as I went (shiny things distract me and the 12 logs in the fire are burning bright)

    ~Cpanel.zip

    Here are some others (I might have already included them in the compressed folder - not sure)

    You should be able to launch them in a Run command ... if not open a PS or Cmd prompt and launch from that shell.

    Hmmm. . . not sure this is all that important information at this point especially sense it was brought up before, albeit there will be those who think that it will be totally stupid because it will confuse the . . . out of the average user. . .
    Absolutely, Lee, absotivoposilutely!

    As long as I can find what I'm looking for it doesn't matter to me.
    And that will be the problem, Winuser! Right now, I go to settings first, but half to three fourths of the time I can't find what I need and have to resort to the Control Panel.

    In addition, the Settings app is more touch friendly.
    It is? But I don't like to touch my screen; leaves too many greasy fingerprints!

    They think that touch is the future and don't really care what the desktop customers think. Just another indication that the traditional desktop user is getting the short end of the stick.
    Yes, and laptop users too, since most laptops are still mouse driven.

    I don't follow your logic.

    Just because they kill control panel, and have not yet added some piece of functionality to Settings due to time constraints, how exactly does that relate to anything about a desktop vs mobile argument?

    Anything missing in settings is because they haven't had the time to put it there yet.
    Because Settings UI is geared towards touchscreen devices, as is a lot of W10's UI.

    I didn't say things were missing from Settings because it was for mobile devices did I? I know more stuff will probably be added to it, hence my saying it will be all well and good if/when they do. Did you miss that bit?

    No. The Settings app is geared to toward being a Universal app. Yes, the UI is touch friendly, but that is just something that is a requirement going forward for all new development. Universal apps run on all hardware architectures, and that's the primary purpose, not touch.

    To add, ref Wynona's comments. As it exists at the moment, there is no reason why you should need to use your finger - the mouse is still there.

    Of course it's touch orientated. If mobile devices could use the desktop UI nothing would have changed.

    This is the standard anti-touch hyperbole. "Touch friendly" is not "touch oriented" or a "touch os" or "touch ui". It's a UI that works for both touch and keyboard/mouse. Please stop perpetuating this myth of being only useful for touch.
