      Nice summary of the changes between Windows 7 and Windows 10 Version 1809.

      About finding where a setting has moved to (Settings, the old Control Panel, totally deprecated, or somewhere else or a changed name) I have a rule of thumb:

      When in doubt, ask Cortana. I just use Cortana, limited to Local Search, as my Index of Settings. If she can’t find something, it is well-buried. In such cases, Microsoft has reference pages at their site, but more often, Google is my friend. How-To Geek is often the best reference on a whole range of “where is this?” issues for all versions of Windows.

      (In Linux with regard to finding stuff or understanding how stuff works or is parsed, Google is my friend, too! Though Ubuntu and to some extent Fedora — and most developers — do have their own “official” help pages. Some are better than others.)
