Accessing Control Panel via Windows Explorer ignores my View setting for Control Panel and always defaults to Category View. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Accessing Control Panel via every other way results in it remembering to use Large Icons. I want it to ALWAYS be Large Icons yet every single time it is accessed via Windows Explorer it resets to Category View, which is by far the worst view out of them all.

  • Hi,

     

    How do you access the Control Panel via Windows Explorer?

     

    As my understanding, you want to type “Control Panel” in Windows Explorer to access control panel and view the items by large icons. If I misunderstand your words, please feel free to let me know.

     

    You would notice that the location of Control Panel is Control Panel\All Control Panel Items when the items viewed by large icons. If you want to view items by large icons when access Control Panel via Windows Explorer, you should type “Control Panel\All Control Panel Items”.

     

     

     

    Hope it helps.

  • Photobucket Clicking that, ignores my setting. I have Control Panel set to Large Icons and when accessing it via the Start Menu, it opens with Large Icons. If I open it the way I show in the picture, it always opens it in Category view ignoring how I have it configured to appear.
