    From what I've read, Frank, and from Windows 10 builds automatically updating my PC, there won't be an installation issue; the user just has to give permission.

    Hi there

    People - even totally non technical ones don't have much trouble with updating mobile phone apps - (except when they don't work of course) or even updating an OS like Android to a later version. Ms is trying to make Windows updates as seamless as possible so the amount of technical knowledge required to perform an update will be minimal.

    The main problem though with all these simplified "one-click" type of installs is that IF something DOES go wrong then it's usually almost impossible to fix it.

    Cheers

    Might as well get used to the fact that it's all being written over to WinRt from Win32 API. WinRT is a far better, efficient API that is able to run on both x86 and ARM architectures. It's also sandboxed environment to allow for greater security and stability.

    How are applications that put an entry in the Control Panel going to be treated? I know there are many like Nvidia, Quicktime and Flash that put entries into it.
    Microsoft can't completely retire Control Panel for this reason if no other. Maybe they can label it 'Legacy Control Panel' and discourage developers from making new applets for it. BUT is it nice and easy to create the same thing in PC Settings?

    I am, however, disappointed if PC Settings still doesn't include everything in Control Panel.

    Why can't they retire the CP? MS can do whatever they so desire. It's their OS. Not sure, but I suspect the delay in transferring over is not really for the users. I would guess it's for third-party companies to to have time to write their applets in WinRT for the new WinRT Settings app. It is a Modern WinRT feature of the OS. New tech development takes time. It's not an overnight matter.

    might be dumb question

    Is there any reason why 3rd party apps need to have items in the control panel?

    Can they not just have the settings in the app (eg quicktime) or create there own settings app if its a utility for other things(flash)

    Outside of the "Program and Features" to remove a program I can't see any connection at all. But if the "Program and Features" finds it's way to the Settings then there is no issue.. IMO,

    Well most of them that are already in use and need control panel might refuse to work properly if it's not there.

    Take Realtek audio drivers for instance, controls are in there, Revo uninstaller too.

    Open Settings, click on System, then Apps and Features,
    Far more informative than Control Panel, and so easy to remove Progs.
