They’re not hard to find, just in different places. I can’t give you a good idea of where the settings were before the Creators Update, because the update happened for me about two weeks after I got Windows 10, and I wasn’t that familiar with where some of the settings were before.

Thanks for your input …… Are those system settings that have been moved hard to find? …… Do you know which of those system settings have been located somewhere else?

I did it almost two months ago, and have experienced no problems. The only thing is that in the Creators Update, some of the locations of different system settings have been moved from where they were in Original Windows 10.
