Microsoft is pushing the Control Panel aside in its latest Windows 11 updates

The Control Panel in Windows 11 will be the last one. The software giant has introduced a number of changes to its settings in Windows 11 and this month began testing more ways to replace the Control Panel.

The advanced network settings have been moved into a new page in the settings app in the new test versions of Windows 11. The network and device settings in Windows 11 can be found in the Settings app instead of in the Control Panel.

The section of the Control Panel used to uninstall apps is now redirecting to the Settings app. The section for uninstalling Windows updates is now in the settings app, rather than in the control panel.

The Control Panel in Windows 10 has been the subject of attempts to move away from it. The Settings app in Windows 8 was a way for Microsoft to change the traditional Control Panel. The two have been together for support reasons, like how Microsoft had two browsers inside Windows 10.

The Settings app was designed to be a new broom that sweeps clean, but there are still plenty of settings that you have to head into the Control Panel for. Windows 10 and Windows 11 offer a more modern take on how users control their PC.

Microsoft describes the latest changes as an ongoing effort to bring over settings from Control Panel into the settings app. It is clear that Microsoft is going to make the Control Panel redundant.

Windows 11 is an attempt to simplify a Windows operating system that has been used the same way for decades. Microsoft did not go far enough with the Control Panel in the initial release of Windows 11, but it has simplified things in other areas. Microsoft will be able to finalize what has felt like an unfinished version of Windows after these monthly changes.
