As you are in the Settings, you will see that its look has been changed completely when compared to the previous one. The older one had a bright color with it. But this new Settings holds only black and white tinged with it. Even the icon of the Settings has also been changed. The first thought that aroused our mind is that it looks more like our own Control Panel.

There are nine different categories of settings related to the PC are listed. Each category holds its own set of settings to deal with. We will try our best to pen down the details of all the categories. Well, the categories are System, Devices, Network & Internet, Personalization, Accounts, Time & Language, Ease of Access, Privacy, and Update & Recovery.

In the later section of this article, we will take you through the new features that have been added to the System category. Let us walk through them.
