Among the changes that Microsoft reportedly plans for the new Windows 8 operating system, we can count one that reportedly affects the Control Panel.
Apparently, Microsoft is determined to replace the popular Control Panel in Windows 8 with PC Settings, at least this is what recent reports suggest.
We already had the chance to have a look at some of the modifications that Microsoft plans for the desktop client, courtesy of a series of leaked screenshots of Windows 8 Build 8158.
In addition to these, the Redmond-based company is reportedly set to make a series of other changes to the OS as well.
Up until now, the Control Panel folder has been present on all Windows releases, and it comes as a surprise that Microsoft might have decided to take it off.
