Menu and icons location are a little different in Windows 8 than any of the older Windows version. Okay, it got changed a lot. But, not sure if it is better though. That will be another post.
To access and open Control Panel in Windows 8, you will need to follow the below instructions
1 – In the “Start” screen, right-click on the screen
2 – When you see the “All Apps” menu, click on it. This will display all applications on the screen for you.
3 – Look for the “Control Panel” icon.
* It is under the Windows System section
