Chapter 22. Configuration via Control Pa... > Sizing Up the Control Panel

Sizing Up the Control Panel

As most experienced Windows users know, the Control Panel is the central location for making systemwide modifications to everything from accessibility options to user profiles. Microsoft has moved some features around in Windows XP from where you might expect them from your experience with Windows 2000, NT, 98, and so on. Most of these movements have resulted in new or expanded applets in the Control Panel. So, before throwing up your hands in frustration, check there (and Table 22.1 in the next section). The Help system also has a “Where is it now?” feature, which will help you locate seemingly vanished items.
