How to access the Control Panel in Windows 8

After installing Windows 8 in VMware for testing I had a minor network issue; the computer not picking up an ip address. So the first stop was to look in Control Panel and see what’s what…Now where’s the Control Panel?

You can access it in several ways. These instructions are for non-touch devices.

Method 1.

On Start Window, just start typing Control Panel, by the time you’ve typed three letters the Apps results should have Control Panel at the top of the list.

Method 2.

From the Desktop screen, click on Windows Explorer, click Computer on the left hand side, click the Computer menu option, then you will see a Control Panel button.

Method 3.

Press the Windows Key + R, type control, click ok.

I hope this helps!
