New Thing Three for Vista: Control Panels

The Control Panel has a new look (click on the image for a larger view):


Recent tasks are tracked in the left sidebar. You can change to the 'Classic' view. However, things are easier to find than in XP's control panel (so you may not need to revert to Classic view). some items, like Windows Sidebar Properties and Internet Options, appear in more than one category. New control panels, like Windows Defender (more details in a later post), Windows Experience Index, and Windows Sidebar Properties are now included. Instant search is available in the upper right corner and will search in the context of the Control Panels when you're in this specific window.
