Windows 11 will review its Settings menu, goodbye control panel

Windows Sun Valley, which could be Windows 11, will change its Settings menu in depth. It could be reorganized and propose a new color code. A way to permanently remove the control panel

Windows Sun Valley will be the next big Windows update scheduled for the end of the year. An update so important that it could even be synonymous with Windows 11. Today, it is the settings menu that makes talk about it.

In 2012, Windows 8 introduced a new menu of settings, supposed to simplify the august control panel, which did not disappear however. This menu was further improved with Windows 10 in 2015 and should undergo a new facelift this year. The goal here would always be to remove this control panel, in order to integrate everything the user needs. Little information yet on how it should work, but Windows Latest says it will look new and adopt a whole new way of working.

Similarly, the icons would change and adopt colour codes to help the user find what they are looking for at a glance. As the site states, everything is above all a question of organization. Moreover, some features will be highlighted more, such as multitasking and virtual desktop management. A first image appeared on the net, but nothing says that we are really dealing with these parameters.


Sun Valley, the code name for this new Windows design, has been in the news for a few months now. It could actually be much more than a visual facelift, since some are starting to talk about Windows 11. Microsoft will hold a conference on June 24 to present its new features. Sun Valley or Windows 11 should then be unveiled in detail. In reality, this shift would be logical in order to clearly mark the difference with the «old» version, that is to say the one we are currently using.

As a reminder, Windows 10 was released in 2015 and was the final version of the OS. This was the case for six years, as Microsoft set out to make it available to everyone while deploying its updates free of charge. Windows 11 could adopt the same logic. Response June 24.
