Hello Meamjw,

The Control Panel will open the same way that it was closed by default. However, you can use OPTION THREE in the tutorial below to force the Control Panel to always open to the view you like.

Control Panel View - Category or Icons

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Brink,
Your post solved my problem. The solution was a most unintuitive thing on the part of Ms programmers. Who would think choosing large icons would result in a completely different format?
Thank you!
