    It's little confusing and messed up when we have Control Panel + Settings where some options are shared.

    Do anyone knows if they are planning to remove Control Panel and integrate all it's items into Settings app?

    An example that is in control panel of 9901 but not previous versions is:

    Windows Update

    This UI is deprecated. To get updates, go to Settings -. Update and recovery -> Windows Update

    For some reason I cannot get screen shots to work or cannot find where they are being stored at. ( not in the normal place for me)

    I like having both personally, but can understand parts of the old control panel being removed and or the old control panel being completely removed.

    It sure seems like they are doing away with the Control Panel, if not completely then they are moving most of it to 'Settings'. Maybe to be easier to find more commonly used settings. Who knows, maybe just to conform to their 'mertoifying' of the OS. To me, from seeing the leaked 9901, it looks like going from a Cadillac to a Geo.

    For screenshots, just hit PrntScrn then paste in paint.

    Of course it's temporary, a lot of these registry settings are for internal testing purposes, you will not have them in the final version :)

    Not only will they 'probably' not be in the final version, but they might not be in the next offical build that MS releases. So while useful for the leaked build 9901, it is very possible that it wont work in the next 'official' release because it is apparent that they are moving from the Control Panel to 'Settings'.
