By default, the control panel is in Category View, so when you open it, you see 10 categories (Appearance, sound, etc.) to choose from.
That can make it hard to find what you want. If you notice on the right side there is a link marked Switch to Classic View.
Click there and you will be magically taken to more familiar territory.
Not only are your old friends there, like Add or Remove Programs, but some new friends and descriptions of what they do.
Isn’t that a lot easier?
