In the Windows 10 era, Microsoft stated that it would migrate the control panel functions to the settings application, but in the past, Microsoft’s migration progress was very slow.
However, Microsoft’s migration speed is accelerating in the Windows 11 system development version. The recently released Windows 11 Insider Build 22523 version has migrated many frequently used functions.
Including but not limited to printers and scanners, as well as the latest installed updates and program management that have been migrated to. Microsoft moves uninstalling apps from Control Panel to the Settings app. Of course, the migration is actually to force users to use the settings application instead of the traditional control panel.
In the Windows 11 Dev Build 22523 version launched yesterday, Microsoft has forced the programs and functions in the traditional control panel to jump to the settings application.
The programs and functions of the control panel will be redirected to the settings application by default, where users can manage all installed applications.
The installed updates, system cumulative updates, have been removed from the control panel. If you need to manage updates, you need to enter the settings application update history.
In the update history, users can view feature updates, quality updates, driver updates, and other definition updates. There is also an uninstall update button at the bottom.
In the uninstall update, if the update supports uninstallation, it will be displayed here. If it is not displayed, it means that the uninstallation is not supported.
