If you are using Windows 10 for a while, you definitely know that the classic Personalization options were removed in one of the pre-release builds. All options to personalize are now there in the Settings app, which is a Metro app designed for touch screen users and has controls which are poorly designed or have limited functionality. If you are not satisfied by this new way to tune up your OS appearance, you might be interested in accessing the classic Control panel applets. Thankfully, it is still possible.
I am happy to announce Personalization Panel for Windows 10 v1.1. Personalization Panel for Windows 10 is an alternative to the Settings app with the familiar look revived. In this release, I implemented all requested features by users.
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.
As you may already know, Microsoft ditched the classic appearance (personalization) and themes UI in Windows 10 because some of those settings are moving to the Settings Modern app. If you prefer the good old classic Personalization options, I would like to show you how to add a cascading menu for the Desktop. All items on this menu will open the classic appearance options.
