Control Panel "list" and "detail" view (and sorting)...Why were they removed? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I think that's a legitimate question and I've spent the better part of 2 hours of my employers time trying to find an answer (and a workaround).  I just prefer things in one long list (without resizing a window to achieve it).  Fortunately I can still get this by customizing the Start menu and making the control panel open as a menu but that's less than ideal...I just want a sortable list and it's apparently never coming back.

    Why?
