How to access System in Windows 10

Perhaps the title of this post is misleading. In previous versions of Windows, it was enough to enter the Control Panel and from there, access this item. However, with the arrival of version 20H2 this element has been removed. On the other hand, it has not been completely removed. More correctly it has been hidden. Please note that Microsoft is betting on a gradual removal from the Control Panel. Therefore, its functions are being migrated to the modern Windows Settings. But don’t worry, today we will see how to access System in Windows 10.
