How to highlight control panel views

Hi

When I open control panel
then Programs
then default programs

under view the items
Ext large icons
Med icons
small
list details
tiles
auto arrange
sort by
group

Are not highlighted and am unable to choose which I prefer.

Its probabley a simple thing to put right but I am not sure how.

Thanks in anticipation of a simple reply

I get the same thing, vidanova. Apparently these choices are only available in certain Control Panel items. E.g., the View option you want is available in the Fonts section of Control Panel

Hmmm, I just had a look on mine out of curiosity and the option IS there.

I am just looking into it now.

I just had a pretty good dig around trying to find ways to enable them but didn't find one.
