Up until today, one of the unanswered questions was, what is the Control Panel’s future moving forward with Windows 10? It shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that Microsoft wants the old Control Panel gone from its operating system. On a new Tweet from Gabriel Aul from Microsoft, confirms that the company is slowly migrating all the Control Panel options to the new Settings app. This mean that in a no so near-future all Windows configuration will be accessible from the Settings app and the Control Panel will no longer exist.

— Gabriel Aul (@GabeAul) March 18, 2015 This is actually a good news as the Settings app is more user-friendly than the Control Panel and everything will be located in one place, but this isn’t a great news for all those who grow up and feel more comfortable using the good old Control Panel. Keep in mind that this transition will not happen overnight as the Tweets begins with the wording “in time yes”, then Aul continues saying that Microsoft expects “the Settings app to subsume all of the prior Control Panel functionality”. However, we can already see functionalities actually being removed from the Control Panel, like the case of Windows Update, which it’s only accessible from the Settings app in Windows 10.
