“Control Panel” Metro App in Windows 8

One of the things which I noted instantly after installing the Windows 8 Consumer Preview was that the Control Panel Metro App which was there in the Windows 8 Developer Preview was missing in Windows 8 Consumer Preview.

I was instantly thinking, has Microsoft taken it away? well the answer for that is “NO”

Its still there in Windows 8 Consumer Preview, but not as a Metro App and it can be accessible in different ways

Press Window Key + I and select More PC Settings or Move your mouse pointer to the top right corner or bottom right corner of the screen and click on the Settings Charm

Click on More PC Settings
