Microsoft has been slowly phasing out the classic control panel, and more pages are moving to the Windows Modern Settings app. It looks like the next Windows 11 update 22H2 -- cumulative or minor feature update will redirect more pages from the control Panel to the Settings app.

With Windows 11, Microsoft redesigned the Settings app and began the transition to a new experience. In many ways, the Windows 11 feature upgrade simplifies many functions for users, as it migrates every little feature available in the Control Panel to the Windows Settings.

The setup application now uses WinUI and is ready for modern pages that involve a lot of design changes. Microsoft plans to move everything from the control Panel to Settings apps at some point in the future as part of the company's long-term migration effort, according to sources familiar with the development.

In a recent update, users can now delete more apps installed on their devices. At that time, certain applications could only be removed through the control panel because the Settings application did not recognize certain Windows applications, including the Win32 desktop software.

Users can finally delete all Win32 applications using the Settings application. As mentioned earlier, this option was previously only available in the Classic control Panel. Users can also delete applications that have interdependent relationships. For example, Steam and the game application running on Steam, or fixing and modifying the Win32 application.

Of course, this isn't the end of the classic control panel, as the migration is still a work in progress. Many of the key pages exist in the control Panel, but Microsoft's migration will come to an end when most taskbars do not need the control panel.

But the transition has been slow, and control panels and Settings will continue to exist side by side in Windows 11.

Reports indicate that Microsoft has canceled the Windows 11 23H2 version because the company plans to focus on smaller feature updates before developing the next operating system, namely Windows 12.
