    While I'm here, here's a new color scheme to match Bing Desktop of the day. A rich blue. Just like the day, it's new.

    Hmmm, OK, maybe it's because Apps are mixed in. Yeah, Apps and Features (could use a better name there) is sort of system, but it's for removing and changing stuff. Then there's Default Apps.

    Maybe it's because I found the apps stuff first, or not . . . I don't know, it just doesn't seem intuitive to me.

    I guess they're trying to have less places to look, but if they're not where I first think to look, then they're in the wrong place.

    Thanks for the picture. It's nice.

    Nicest thing with new Control panel aka Settings is that for most part there's no Apply, OK, Yes, No, Maybe, make switch and it's done.

    Yup, and if you make the wrong switch, what happens then?

    Turn it again, the other way, besides, Apply OK or whatever was no guarantee it would be good.

    Hopefully some of the options don't get lost in the transfer.

    Let's take a look at both for comparison.

    Ok, so we've seen CP grow to a fairly "monstrous" size over the years. It is also something we've been using for so many years that it's engrained in our minds. Question is, is it change for just change's sake or is it a change for the good? IMO it all depends on how we look at it.

    If we look at it from a standpoint in understanding MS's objective of succeeding to implement one OS platform across all devices with mouse, keyboard, and touch (to include pen and/or finger) input, then I think we can say it's for the good for it for it compliments all those. This is also to include that the app will adjust to any size screen at any resolution. That cannot be accomplished with the old Win32 CP.

    I guess the only other conclusion is that if we want to remain with the old way of performing system configuration without including multiple devices, then the change is not good. I don't know any other way to put it.

    If we note the subcategories listed under each category in Settings app I would tend to think it to be better for the commoner to lead them to as to where to make a change, assuming when it's all completely ported over. Also, I would tend to think they shouldn't be tinkering with half of what's in CP for to mess up their systems. How many times have we seen that? IMO it would detour them from doing such. For the most part all they're really interested in is maybe changing a color scheme or desktop background and go their merry way to surf the web or social site.

    LOL! "Dad, I messed my Windows up! Can you fix it?!!" > "What did you do now?!!"

    BTW, I'd like to know how many PCs are used for consumption vs work. That would be interesting to know.

    I can see Settings getting more and more Icons/categories as stuff gets moved from one to the other. I'm thinking it won't be long before it gets a cluttered as Control Panel is now.
