Things I would like to see in Windows 8 – Part 2 – The Control Panel

So, this is a tougher one to write about.

Microsoft have struggled to simplify the control panel for the past several years and iterations of Microsoft Windows.

Things got better with Windows 7 as they have made several improvements and it looks a lot more intuitive.

That’s the good news.

The bad news is that there is still way too much going on in the control panel.

My cousin was telling me the other night that he was at some Microsoft event and the Microsoft employee giving the presentation had trouble locating a feature in the Control Panel.

I don’t have the perfect solution proposed but I do know that for Windows 8, it needs to get simpler.

There are way too many things going on in the control panel right now..

What do you guys think?
