Windows 10 has introduced several new customization options and a plethora of settings. The Windows Universal Apps or the UWP Apps are the ones that there pre-installed in Windows 10. Now, we know while uninstalling a program we take the help of Control panel. The Control Panel used to be the one roof house for all the Settings of Windows operating system. The concept changed completely with Windows 10 and the Settings section has been divided and distributed into two different area. One is the Control Panel and the other one is Settings menu.
