Microsoft May Remove Control Panel from Future Windows 10 Versions
According to a recent report; Microsoft is planning to remove the Control Panel from the upcoming versions of its latest operating system, Windows 10.
The confirmation comes via Microsoft’s Head of the Insider Program, Gabe Aul, and a Senior Program Manager, Brandon LeBlanc, who have said that Microsoft may do away with the good ole Control Panel for the modern ‘Settings’ app.
Since there are currently two methods to change ‘system settings’ in Windows – one being the Control Panel and the other one being the new Settings app – this whole thing requires duplication of code which eventually translates into a more complex system which consumes more resources.
According to Aul, doing away with the traditional Control Panel and sticking to the modern ‘settings application’ should render things a whole lot simpler and smoother. There is no confirmation when Microsoft will start rolling out the said update which will remove the Control Panel from the current version of Windows 10.
Fudzilla notes that since not all of the Control Panel features are available in the modern ‘settings application’, the update will start rolling out once Microsoft has migrated all the system settings to the new settings application.
