Windows 7: Problem with Icon Size in Manage Wireless Networks

Problem with Icon Size in Manage Wireless Networks

I'm running Win7 Home (64-bit)
When I enter 'Network & Sharing Center' > Manage Wireless Networks, for some inexplicable reason, the icon showing my network connection has suddenly changed to 'small' (VERY small!!) when it was previously 'large'
I checked 'View' and also right-clicked free space in window, but all other options are now greyed out.
Anyone know what's happened and how I can reverse it?
Many thanks

Hello kwil,

In the "Manage Wireless Networks" window. First press the ALT to bring up the menu. Select: Tools / Folder Options / View / Reset Folders

Back in the View menu, the greyed out options should be selectable again.

Hope this helps,

Hello John...many thanks for taking time to reply.
Pressing the 'ALT' button (do you mean: Ctrl + ALT?) doesn't appear to do anything. Certainly doesn't bring up the 'menu' as you suggest.
In 'Manage Wireless Network' window, if I go to Tools > Folder Options > View > Reset Folders, is that the answer?
That, I'm guessing would reset ALL my Win7 folders...Yes/no?
