Microsoft plan to retire Control Panel in Windows 10

Microsoft has continuously shifted Control Panel UI updates over the years trying to push users towards the Setting App but failed as users effortlessly prefer this feature over new fashion updates. As Control Panel is yet very powerful with user-friendly UI.

But now Microsoft has finally decided to redirect its users from the control panel's system to the 'About' in the app's system page. This also means that Microsoft is thinking of blocking properties shortcut from (this PC page) and third-party applications that could have been handy in accessing the control panel page however the user can still search control panel in the Cortana search bar but the shortcut keys are being removed with each new update in Windows 10.
