Obviously, Microsoft has no easy way to remove all legacy components. For now, the company is just trying to hide legacy options to simplify the setup experience.

In fact, we are likely to see more control panel pages disappear with modern alternatives. However, Microsoft will not completely delete these pages, and these techniques will always work.
