Makes no difference to me.
Precisely. People, when will you finally realize that m$'s "developers" spend, like, 99.99% of their working hours pondering over ONE thing: how to take away as much control from users as it is possible.
Their policy is, was and will be but one: WE (m$) are in charge here, WE control; you (users/customers) are going to use it the way WE want it to be used. Try to realize that m$ is the part of a highly militarized establishment that uses the software as yet another tool for over-watching/scrutinizing and controlling the citizens.
I dont think they will take away the CP without compensating for it in other areas, ie, either improve the settings panel or to include the major CP items elsewhere, like in the start menu tree where you can pin them to the start panel or to the desktop. Personally I use CP shortcuts a lot therefore reducing my need for CP. Secondly, MS is keenly aware of the disdain people had for Windows 8 when they removed the start menu, so they may allow some means to restore the CP (via reg or hack) if people insist on retaining it. Thirdly, pretty sure third party software will come out pretty quickly to bring it back in some form or another.
crap like this is why I hate W10. They are constantly changing,breaking crap that doesn't need to be. It's almost as if they have a bunch of useless employees that have nothing to do and have to do something to justify their existence.
half the features you absolutely require are never found in their modern UI you have to go to the old panels, I hope this is juste the main control panel menu and not everything inside or windows is going to be unusable
modern ui = 1/1000 of old control panel settings maybe less
I guess only time will tell eh?
They just don't fracking learn do they?
The control panel will be removed but, the applets are not going anywhere. The settings panel does not have all the settings yet and besides, backwards compatibility is needed anyways. The only thing that is going away is the control panel itself, and it is about time. (My opinion, anyways.)
I can't wait for the next build of windows 10 that just completely removes the shell altogether and only displays pretty colors when I boot my PC.
Are they snorting cocaine over there or what? Their new settings is a mess and unusable. Nothing is available at a glance, I have to scroll because someone who is not right in their mind thought it would be awesome to sort it like a list.
I guess I just live in an alternative universe because their new settings crap should be removed. I already dread the day where I have to make myself shortcuts for all of it. What a stupid move
I use it a lot, this is unfortunate.
Where will Administrative tools be moved too?
Where will Windows defender Firewall be moved too?
How about Microsoft removes DOS instead? Oh wait.... They can't.
I wouldn't mind if the new menu wasn't trash, but it indeed is trash , IMO its slow and requires more clicks and has less obvious navigation to achieve the same result.
Windows 10 is a bloatware mess. So many pointless apps. Most can't even be uninstalled. Yet all of these apps asks for internet access... Why does Microsoft insist on these apps for a PC environment? Maybe they think the kids will think they are cool and hip or something.
I will defend developers - they do code decisions which are made by feature owners (a SCRUM term, top people in other words) and architects.
What do you mean by "remove dos"?
I was being sarcastic because it's the core system of Windows.
DOS is (was) operating system. There is no DOS in 64 bit Windows. There is CLI - Command Line Interface.
In 32 bit Windows there is DOS emulation.
I might be getting confused then. Isn't command line, DOS? Or is it just not part of Windows anymore?
