Windows 7: Control panel view style?

Control panel view style?

Is there any way of changing the view style of "All Control Panel Items"? Being stuck with tiles sucks hard and all of the options are greyed out.

Hello Jambananas, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Resetting all folder view settings back to default should restore this for you.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks, but this doesn't work as the control panel view doesn't appear to take its values from standard folder view settings. The setting changed to medium icons, but it still appeared as tiles and the options were still greyed out.
