Windows 11: Control Panel is here to stay, but it’s being slowly replaced

Source: www.windowslatest.com


With Windows 8, Microsoft introduced the modern UI Settings app and it was supposed to replace Control Panel at one point.

Windows 10 has been out for nearly six years, and Windows still has two ways to change apps. The large scale migration didn’t happen as Settings doesn’t have all the necessary features.

On Windows 11, which is the next generation of Windows, several advanced settings still rely on Control Panel. Control Panel is necessary if you want to change advanced settings like power profile, but Microsoft is working on a few new features that would push more users towards the modern settings.

Windows advanced network settings

For example, Windows 11 Settings app now lets you manage the network adapters without having to use Control Panel. To change adapter settings, you can open > Network & internet > Advanced network settings.

Network properties

As you can see in the above screenshot, you can now click on enable/disable button for the network connection under the “Network adapters” section. This feature was previously accessible through the Control Panel only.

In the near future, the new operating system will automatically direct you to the Settings app whenever possible.

Storage settings

Windows 11 Storage Settings

Windows 11 has also redesigned the Storage Settings to help users make more sensible use of their available storage space. The latest introduction is an improved layout with the ability to free up space on your drive by detecting older and unused files on the local disk.

Storage Settings layout

For advanced uses, there’s a new feature called “Manage Disks and Volumes”. As the name suggests, this “modern experience” is based on the legacy disk management tool and it has been redesigned with accessibility in mind.

Windows 11 modern disk management

It features better integration with other storage Settings app and Microsoft has promised additional design improvements to the modern disk management utility.

Battery settings

Microsoft is working on a new settings page aimed at battery users.

Windows 11 comes with a new settings page that will use graphs to show you more detail about the battery and power usage of the device. You can look at the resources-intensive apps which are sapping the most power and filter the results based on a certain time period like the past seven days.

Windows 11 battery usage

As you can see in the above and below images, Windows Settings can now give you a weekly and 24 hours breakdown of battery usage. These graphs are similar to Android or iOS’s battery saver and they can help users understand how much of their battery is being used.

Power and battery settings

If you want to control power profiles, you still need to use the traditional Control Panel-style settings.

Windows 11 is expected to bring in more pages from the Control Panel, and some legacy pages (those still using Windows 10 interface) within the new Settings app will also receive a facelift in the upcoming preview builds.

Microsoft understands that Control Panel has a very dedicated fanbase and Windows Settings work isn’t done yet, so the company is not planning to remove it anytime soon, but Microsoft will be redirecting more legacy pages to the modern Settings app.

I was in absolute crisis mode when my laptop crashed. I showed up at the door at 10am and by the end of the business day I not only had the long term fix planned but they simultaneously provided me with a short term fix so my work wasn’t interrupted. I’ve used the big store “squad” techs in the past but never again. This is my new go to spot!

They were able to repair the charging port of my ReMarkable tablet, which I rely on, and I was afraid I'd permanently broke it. Super quick, too!

Great service. Walked in unannounced with a badly broken phone screen. Replaced in less than a half hour at significantly less than the internet said the price would be for my phone model.Friendly, competent personnel with their repair station in plain view and good order. While I'm going to try to refrain from breaking my phone again, I know where to go if I do.

UPDATE: I left this review a year ago...This place is always great! They really know what they are doing with computers and phones! I won’t go anywhere else! 3/7/24: I literally cannot speak highly enough of the team here. Our technology is so important to us in life. My work laptop was a tough task for Stacey at Eazy, he saved everything and was so patient with me! I will never go anywhere else!
