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.

Great service! Fixed up a water spill corrosion. Laptop worked for a few days after but then didn't work again, so I brought it back in and the owner spent an extra 30 minutes with me to fix up the issue. Laptop works without issues now. Took my broken phone screen for a fix in the same week. All fixed up too! I know, a bad week for my electronics...

My boyfriend cracked his apple watch screen. So for his birthday I brought it here for a screen repair. They charged me about 150, said they could replace it. Picked it up and turned it on and it was working fine. A couple of days later it stopped working. And upon closer examination the screen was glued on and I was able to pull it off pretty easily. What a scam. If you can't actually do the repair properly why take on the job? Came in with a fully functional product with a cracked screen and got back a hack job. Water and sweat obviously just killed the watch completely. I didnt even bother coming back I just felt like such an idiot. But just beware. Just take your stuff to the apple store.EDIT: In regards to the response you should probably tell customers that before or even after the transaction. Love that the warranty is to replace the part, but your carelessness already ruined the watch so I guess that's another way of saying tough luck we basically got your money and you have no recourse.

They were able to ship a new screen overnight and replace my Pixel 7 Pro screen in under an hour for a great price. Don't go to the big chain stores - go here! Friendly, honest, and fast.

I have a bad habit of demolishing my phone screen on a semi-regular basis, but Charlie always hooks it up when I need it the most! Highly recommend this shop, they always get it sorted in an hour or less (my last visit took only 20 minutes)! Excellent service at lightning speed!!

Once again, Stacy at Eazy Computers & Iphone repair saved the day. They have salvaged my Wawa coffee soaked keyboard, my cracked iphone, and today, my glitched out Comcast disappearing password! They are patient, efficient, accommodating, and oh yeah, tech savvy! Maybe even truly tech genius! Thank you again, Eazy Computers on Chestnut Street!

This place is a gem. Most recently I thought my cracked screen iPhone was shot and went in to purchase one of their used models. The salesperson assured me mine was fine and just needed a new screen which she replaced in 15 minutes. I was ready to plonk down $400 but the salesperson talked me out of it.Laptop repair - super quick, excellent communication, great price. They researched and provided me with a home entertainment set up complete with descriptions, pros/cons and costs.Eazy Computers & iPhone Repair not only gives me very fair prices for excellent work, they restore my faith in humanity.
