Windows 7: Control Panel View Setting

Control Panel View Setting

Hi, I am trying to get the control view to small icons either via registry or group policy. For whatever reason it is always set to large icon view.

I am setting the following reg key HKU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\ForceClassicControlPanel

REG_DWORD=1

Any ideas ?

Sorted !

I finally found the reg key
its HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ControlPanel\AllItemsIconView.
Set this to 0 for large icons, 1 to small icons. Not sure where this is set in group policy
