I start to type settings into my Windows 10 search bar. By the time I type "Se", its predicted that I want to open settings. I hit the enter key, and settings opens. I takes me literally 2 seconds. I'm not sure what you're trying to prove here. 

I did not say try to open settings, I said open settings:

(No scroll bar + No notification/indication you can scroll + no multiple windows allowed + do I need to go on?)

You're not making sense. I succeeded in opening settings. I didn't "try."

 

EDIT: Come to think of it, control panel from Windows 7 is still available on 10. You can adjust setting however you'd like. Also, I prefer the new settings menu over the settings on the computers at my school, who still run Windows 7.

I never asked if you *can* open it. I said open it in both, and tell me what you see. XD

All about personal preference, my dude. 

 

Actually having information on a screen is about personal preference? Okay. [slowly walks away]

Like I said, you can use control panel if you want to. I prefer the default settings, thank you.

Not really, because like I've said twice before, control panel still fully functions on Windows 10. It just doesn't support your argument, so we've entirely glossed over it.

For visual design, I say Vista wins hands-down. I'm not a big fan of any visual design after Vista, but I'd probably choose Windows 7's visual design next.

 

I use Startisback in Windows 10 to make the start menu and taskbar look like a mix between Windows 7 and Vista.

 

I'm not sure what's simple and "haha" about Windows 7. It's mostly the same as Windows 8 and 10 but without the spyware, UWP, and data-harvesting of Windows 10, and offering more control over the OS than Windows 10 does. In ways, Windows 7 is more sophisticated than Windows 10 is.

 

My full answer to the OP question is detailed in these two blog posts:

To me it doesn't seem to be any more so than Windows 7 and 8's... which appear to have the same UI elements visual, just in a different theme. And aside from the action centre (which I disable) and the live tiles (which I definitely disable), I don't think Vista and 7 are more simple-looking than Windows 10.

 

I mean, the start menu of Vista, 7, and 8 are all less basic than Windows 10's, which has a simplified, less functional start menu (which is why I use Startisback to restore the missing functionality). And, apparently (according to a supposed former Windows programmer), the Windows 10 UI is flat and ugly because nobody at Microsoft knows how to create more visually complex UIs, like Vista, 7, and 8 have.

7, I know it best, and don't have to lie to it (re: metered connection) to make it do as it's told, by me.

 

And ^^, yeah Vista looked better out of the box, if only it worked properly...

It did work properly... after Service Pack 2 dropped.

(It's not presented in 10, but OKAAAAAAY.)

 

"It did work properly... after Service Pack 2 dropped." IIRC they called that Windows 7? 😂

Windows 8 was my first windows, but I still recognize that it's total garbage. I would personally go with Windows 10 myself, but if you're more comfortable with the Windows 7 interface, or you just want legacy support for some older programs, Windows 7 isn't a bad choice at all. 

you first windows was 8? man i feel sorry for what you've missed out on lol

Yeah. I used a mac for a long time. Windows 8 was the first time I actually bought a licence key. I'd used windows 7 at school before, though.

Control Panel is not 100% functional in Windows 10 compared with Windows 7.  Microsoft has been slowly removing control panel options and putting them only in the "Settings" metro-looking thing (like Windows Updates or Windows Product activation for 2 examples). 

 

In statements about their plans for the future of Control Panel in Windows 10: Microsoft has said they will not only remove things like "Personalization" but perhaps soon even Sound and Network options.
