How to add a Small and Large icon for Uninstall a Program in Control Panel View: Large and Small?
I hate searching the Main List or a Control Panel in Category view, as not all icons or function seen.
Reg file patch preferred.
Thanks, Donald

Hello Donald,

You should be able to click on the usual View (Menu bar) or View (toolbar button) to select to have Large Icons or Small Icons.

Geeks, although this might seem to be sarcastic joking, please believe me it's not. I have no words to describe how surprised and astonished I was after reading the above post of Shawn.

Funny. I have never, and I mean never, even noticed you can change the icon size on Programs and Features view! For me it has always been as it is by default, I can not understand I have missed that!

I'm probably never going to use any other than the default list view on Programs and Features but I am completely astonished to notice that a simple thing like that's gone completely unnoticed by me . And here am I, thinking I knew Windows 7.

Thanks Shawn for making my day by revealing how little I know!

You're welcome Kari. I know how you feel. I'm always spotting little things like that as well, or just forgot about them.
