One feasible way is to modify Control Panel to let MS know what .cpls are used. Hell, they could even have the .cpl sent to their labs, reverse engineer it, and redo it for the Settings program if they are so damned excited about eliminating the Control Panel. And they could do so by modifying the program they control - the Control Panel itself, to do so.


If 99% of users set their w10 telemetry to "open the firehose all the way, give them everything including the keys to the kingdom and the kitchen sink" what you suggest might be an option.

I'm pretty sure the reality is that most users have set telemetry to the minimum level and aren't even reporting which parts of the Control Panel are still being used; so they're asking to get data about what to prioritize porting next, and potentially if any parts are so little used that they might be reduced to hidden registry keys or group policy settings instead.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
