Microsoft has been working on decoupling the Action Centre from the Notification Centre on Windows 10 since early last year, and it appears this work is still going on in the background.

Using the Mach2 software, it is possible to unlock the hidden Control Centre on Windows 10 (shown in the leaked image above from last year) which gives access to a wide variety of settings without having to go into the proper Windows 10 Settings App.

Lucan on Twitter has posted a screenshot of the new Control Center settings panel, which shows a full list of the settings available.

Users will be able to wean the list down to just the items they want, and re-arranging the tiles will be possible via drag and drop directly from the Control Center.
