Add Windows Update To Control Panel

Since the official launch of Windows 10 back In 2015, many changes were experienced by every user who had the pleasure to use the OS. One major change however, that was not (and still Isn't) appreciated, Is the missing "Windows Update" option In Control Panel. Wouldn't It be great If It was located there once again? Well, I will make this a reality, by documenting a tutorial on how to place the Windows Update feature back In Control Panel.

In order to achieve this, I will be using the Windows Registry. As opposed to editing and applying changes via user Input, I've created a couple of Registry files that will do all the work, thus not having the need for you to manually perform edits. I've also Included a file, that allows the change to go back to It's previous state. The download links for the files, are located at the end of this article. So without further delay, let's get this tutorial happening.

Step One:
Firstly, here's a visual of my Control Panel as per It's unedited state. As you can see, the "Windows Update" option Is missing.

Step Two:
Once you've downloaded the file, extract the "Add Windows Update To Control Panel" file, to a directory of your choice and double-click It. A window will pop up, with a message asking If you wish to add the entries to the Registry. Simply click "Yes".

Step Three:
A message will now be displayed, confirming that the entries have been successfully added to the Registry. Click OK to complete the process.

Last Step:
As you can see In the Image below, the "Windows Update" option Is now available In Control Panel.

Final Thoughts:
Whilst It's not so much of a big deal to have the Windows Update option In Control Panel, many users are accustomed to accessing It In that manner. It's like removing the C Drive Icon from Windows Explorer, and placing It somewhere In the Settings menu. I certainly wouldn't be happy with that, and I'm sure you share the same opinion.

That aside, as mentioned at the start of this article, If you wish to remove the Windows Update option from Control Panel, I've Included a file that does exactly that. Use It In the same fashion as Step Two above. You can download the file using any of the links below.
