Windows 10 update will give the settings panel a much-needed overhaul
Colorful icons and additional options are coming to Microsoft’s updated Settings app .
Microsoft’s upcoming Sun Valley update for Windows 10 will give the operating system’s settings panel a complete overhaul with new colorful icons and a proper dark mode.
The software giant first introduced its modern settings menu over eight years ago in Windows 8 though at the time it was known as “PC settings”. With the release of Windows 10 in 2015, the PC settings app was renamed to “Settings” and included more options that had previously been exclusive to the operating system’s Control Panel.
While Microsoft had originally said that it would eventually migrate all of the options in Control Panel to Settings once the app was fully developed, the software giant instead moved a few settings each year as opposed to doing so all at once.
