Today, I released my new app called "Personalization Panel for Windows 10". Like many users, I am not happy to use the Settings app, so I coded an alternative with the familiar look revived. Again, like all my other apps, it is free and portable.
Microsoft removed all options from the Personalization window shipped with the classic Control Panel in Windows 10. This is a regressive change from a usability point of view. In the classic Personalization UI, all settings were in a single window, accessible with one click. But the Settings app is a mess. It starts slower, all settings have been rearranged across different pages. When you want to open something like Screen Saver or just change the theme, it opens the classic Control Panel applets any way. It is obvious that Microsoft is still transitioning from the Control Panel to the Settings app, but it is not yet complete, nor polished. I prefer using the classic Personalization UI.
The Personalization Panel for Windows 10 restores the options which were removed from the desktop context menu and replaced with the Settings app.
The application supports translations. It comes with the following languages out of the box:
