  1. Is there a way to not use Windows 10 Settings app


    Hey guys!

    Just updated today, and I'm finding something incredible annoying about win10 and that is the Settings app that is use to set up display, and other stuff.

    While its helpful in some areas, it seem to be short in others, and simple things like changing the wallpaper on your second display is a pain now. I'm wondering if theres a way to disable this, or default some functions to the old app like Display Settings, and Personalisation

    Any help on this issue would be appreciated! *Biggrin

    :)

    Is there a way to use an Android app on a Windows device

    Duplicate post- merged

    Can an Android app be run under Windows 10 ?

    I have a couple of Windows devices that are tablets.

    Is there a way to run an Android app?

    Simple answer is no, Android and Windows are different eco systems and not compatible

    Most of Control Panel is still around but Microsoft have said that they intend to switch everything over to the new Settings app.
