Old Control Panel in Windows 10

Wondering where is the location of old control panel in Windows 10? While windows  10 simplifies many things, it shall be noted that many of is are still used to old small icon style control panel. Fortunately it was not so difficult to find on windows 10.

Hit the start button > tap on hamburger menu and scroll down until you see “Windows System”. Expand that and you will find the old control panel in windows 10.

I am not sure why Microsoft decided to hide the control panel so deep inside the menus. Perhaps that was done in order to show the new users how easy to use their new operating system.

That said it definitely annoyed the more experienced users like me. A simple button to open this control panel inside the baby-ish Settings would have been appreciated.
