Microsoft Could Soon Kill Off the Classic Control Panel in Windows 10
We’ve known for a while that Microsoft was planning to kill off the classic Control Panel in Windows 10 and replace it with the Settings app, but now it looks like the whole thing is very close to happening.
Microsoft essentially wants to get rid of the traditional Control Panel simply because it’s one of the last pieces of the classic Windows experience.
With Windows 10, the company has migrated to a modern concept which it wants to be offered from one end to another. In order for this to be possible, Microsoft is migrating options previously offered in the classic Control Panel to the Settings app, and the latest Windows 10 feature updates allowed this new idea to progress even further.
However, it’s also no secret that Microsoft transitioning from the classic Control Panel to the Settings app is taking place at a super-slow pace, with the company itself not even offering an ETA as to when the legacy feature would go away once and for all.
