    Apple has hinted at this for some time. Finally, I like it. Thanks, Gary, for another clear and concise explanation of mac OS.

    I don't necessarily dislike this new preferences layout, but I don't see much of any benefit to users. Just more of the IOS-ification of macOS. Meanwhile, I appreciate your excellent tutorial. Thank you.

    I want to activate "Automatic log in" function but it couldn't activated. Is there any way to activate. Thanks, Gary.

    Erdem: See https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201476 for some reasons this could be. In general, it is best not to use it for security reasons anyway.

    From my point of view, new look of system setting is the worstest change for a years. Pictures used in the Mouse settings for example make me little bit nervous, looks like on Windoze systems.

    But thank you for your tutorial.

    New Preferences System is NOT helpful , it is a step back.
    Also many Preferences once altered are not being saved!!
    Notebly; 'Signatures'. in 'MAIL' are not being saved.

    Raoul: Signatures are not part of System Settings, but part of Mail Settings. Two different things. I'm not having that problem with Mail signatures, so perhaps an issue on your machine, not something that changed in Ventura? I'd call Apple Support if you can't determine a solution.
