In previous editions of Windows, you could find the Control Panel menu easily, through the Start Menu or through the File Explorer. Windows 10, however, doesn’t display it in these places anymore, which might leave you a bit confused on how to find it.

Fortunately, it’s just a case of knowing where it was moved to — and what keys to press.

How to find the Control Panel in Windows 10

Press the Windows logo on your keyboard, or click the Windows icon in the lower-left of your screen to open the Start Menu. There, search for “Control Panel.” Once it appears in the search results, just click its icon.

Alternatively, in some versions of Windows 10, you can right click the Windows icon at the bottom-left of the screen to bring up the Quick Access menu. It’s listed in this menu underneath the Task Manager.

In the Quick Access menu, you can also click “Run” (or press Windows Key+R) to open the Run menu. There, type in “control panel” and click “OK,” and it should open.

In newer versions of Windows 10, many functions of the Task Manager have been replaced by the Settings app.

You can find the Settings app by selecting it in the Quick Access menu if it appears, or by pressing Windows+I on your keyboard.
