It is almost impossible to set up and use your NAS without using Control Panel. It is the central control unit, like the bridge on a ship.

Shared folders, file services, users, and groups are the primary items to set up for file sharing and storage.
Network and external access, including QuickConnect, are for connectivity or your NAS.

Regional options, notifications, task scheduler, and update settings let you optimize your system. Privileges, the application portal, and indexing services control how you use applications on your NAS.

All in all, Control Panel is actually a collection of 23 applets, each with its specific task.


The Control Panel app is part of DSM. It is always installed, and you can not uninstall it.
