Control Panels: XP vs Vista

By ema.jeans
How different is the Control Panel of Windows XP with that of Windows Vista? Let us try to compare and see.

Windows XP - Windows Vista
Appearance and Themes Appearance and Personalization
Network and Internet Connections Network and Internet
Add or Remove Programs Programs
Sounds Hardware and Sound
Speech and Audio Devices System and Maintenance
Performance and Maintenance User Accounts and Family Safety
Printers and Other Hardware Clock
User Accounts Language and Region
Date Security
Time Additional Options
Regional Options
Accessibility Options
Security Center

As you can see, Windows Vista has shortened the list of options and grouped some into one section. Under the Hardware and sounds section, you can see all your hardware such as your printer, keyboard, and mouse. Under Programs, you can install and uninstall programs. On User Accounts and Family Safety, you can add new users and set up parent control and other safety settings. The ease of Access section lets you customize settings as well as contain the speech recognition feature. And the Additional options contain the antivirus programs of the computer and other valuable information. Lesser sections but more features, better computer experience.
