For those who are familiar with existing versions of Windows, Control Panel is still there and you can find it under ‘Windows System’ in the alphabetical apps menu (click Start). However, common settings have now been put into a simple Settings tool that is the same in all versions of Windows, so you can easily remember how to change settings in all of your devices. This is shown in Figure 4-1a below.
