Control Panel

Definition - What does Control Panel mean?

The control panel, in the context of Windows, is a software module used to perform administrative and management operating system tasks and/or provide access to specific software features.

The control panel is used to configure and manage almost all aspects of Windows, including keyboard and mouse functionality, users and passwords, power options, network settings, desktop background, display settings, sound settings, mouse settings, hardware and software options, installation and removal of programs, parental control, speech recognition, etc.

Techopedia explains Control Panel

The control panel is normally part of the system’s graphical user interface (GUI), which provides easy management and access to panel components.

The control panel is made up of a group of individual control panel applets. Therefore, using the control panel actually implies the use of one or more applets to modify the way in which some parts of Windows works.
