Re: Win10 2004 update.

In reply to a post by Banger:
Yes I noticed that but I think very little else has changed in CP. Jen Gentleman the GUI designer of Win 10 has been tweeting about getting rid of CP but met with some resistance.

I updated from 2004 to 20H2 a couple of weeks ago (very quick and painless) and I have yet to see anything that has changed/ Control Panel still there in all its glory.


20H2 is just an activator, most of the updates were in the last update, 20H2 just activated them, which is why it was so quick.
I am staying as i am for a while, once again there is nothing in the updates that makes any difference to me.

Control panel is still there. To be honest I have to look up what changes happen with each update be I rarely see any difference after an update.

That said once your machine is updated and running you won't need control panel.

With MS updates these days, you don't get a choice.

The quotation below was taken from "How-To Geek".

"Windows 10’s October 2020 Update, also known as the 20H2 update, is here. This update is focused on bug and performance fixes, but it has some larger changes—like the removal of the System Control Panel."

So I guess they were wrong!!

Does anyone know where the weird "20H2" comes from? Intuitive - not!

Choice with what? It is easy enough to stop updates, I have many a time, i have software that will allow me to enable and disable updates at will.

Second half of 2020.

I think the official name is October 2020 update

They may have made it more difficult to get to the control panel, but it will still be there, just like Internet Exploder and other stuff.

It does make sense to refer to it as 20H2 rather than 2010 - partly because of the confusion around is that a month or a year but also because there have been some updates released late so the month actually of release is not the month given in the version.

It is marginally better than UK number plates where 68 means September 2018 to February 2019.

Windows 7 Backup still only exists in the Control Panel, so that's one thing which Control Panel still needs to exist for in Windows 10.
