7 years! The classic control panel doesn't die: Windows 11 takes another step back

The Control Panel is a classic Feature of Windows, but since The launch of Windows 10, Microsoft has been trying to weaken it by moving various system Settings to the new Settings App.

However, seven years later, the control panel is still there, as are many of the classic style Settings items, and there is no telling when or even when they will be transferred.

There has even been some backsliding.

In Build 22509 of Windows 11 in early December, Microsoft moved a number of network Settings options from the Control panel to the Settings App, including Network discovery, file and printer sharing, and public folder sharing. Some network and device Settings in the Control Panel also jumped to the Settings App.

But in Windows 11 Build 22538, Microsoft reintroduced the Network Connection Interface (NCPA.cpL) to the control panel.

Microsoft hasn't explained why it's doing this. It's probably based on user feedback, but it's certainly not a long-term solution.

As of today, Microsoft still hasn't decided when to remove the control panel completely, and it looks like it's going to be a long time, but it's only a matter of time.
