    Control Panel


    I'm reading this book and it shows me what the control panel looks like in Windows 8 but I sure can't get to it. My control panel looks just like the one in Windows 7?

    I'm sure that came from the DP. All that is now under 'More PC Settings' available at the bottom of the screen when you view the Settings charm from the Metro Start screen.

    Go to start and write User, switch to Settings and open Users.

    There you have it now, enjoy

    It is a bit different from picture (order of settings, some settings) as picture is probably from DP.

    As I said above, I'm pretty sure the picture came from the Developer Preview, not the Consumer Preview.

    Hello Richard,

    In W8 CP, that screen has been changed to PC settings now.

    If you like, you can still open the normal Control Panel though.


    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
