Windows 7: Control Panel View

Control Panel View

Hi Brink.
I was looking through your beautiful picture gallery of tutorials and noticed an omission on this item.
I am sure many users wish to keep their selected view. Your tip only allows the view for that session only, or at least on my computer. Fwiw, that "Other site" states that next time you open the Control Panel, your selected view is retained. That is not so. To make the view permanent, the user must right click the Control Panel window and select "Set as Default View...."
