"Windows 10 is getting a 'Windows Tools' control panel for power users"

Recommended Posts


In future versions of Windows 10, Microsoft has removed the venerable 'Administrative Tools' and added a new 'Windows Tools' control panel with almost double the number of tools promoted within it.


As part of this addition, Microsoft took shortcuts previously located in Start Menu folders such as the 'Windows System',  'Windows Accessories', and 'Windows PowerShell' and moved them into the new Windows Tools control panel.

Seems pretty cool, looking forward to playing with it.

Windows Settings is still going to be a thing, so what exactly is this?  Change the name and add some additional shortcuts.  Even more amusing is the fact that now you have a shortcut to the "Control Panel" located inside the new "Administrative Tools" folder. ?


Maybe this is just an incremental change along the road to actually having all the settings and tools in one place, instead of the split personality that has been going on since Windows 8.
