Control Panel

At first glance, the Control Panel looks almost exactly like Win 9x. The operative word here is almost. One thing that is missing in NT 4 is the Device Manager in the Control Panel. Sorry, there is no time saving Device Manager in NT, which was developed before Microsoft thought to add Device Manager to Win9x. Details such as what IRQ are in use, and memory details are quite a bit tougher to find in NT, as they were in Windows 3.1.

In Windows 200 we can find the System icon, which can lead us to many troubleshooting and informational areas. These areas are: Network, Hardware, User Profiles and Advanced properties.

[spacer]NT Stability

Many experienced geeks love NT, as it is quite a bit more stable than Windows 3.x/9.x/Me. And most of us miss the details from the Device Manager. To offset this missing helper, it is not uncommon to load Windows 9x in a small partition of a hard drive with FAT to get the Device Manager. This can be a critical time saver, even more so if non-Plug ‘n Play (legacy) devices are installed.
