    My Control Panel has for some unknown reason changed from showing the Icons and Titles in rows, left to right to a single column list. I cannot get it to view in the manner I prefer (left to right in rows). There used to be a clickable way to change it back and forth but nothing is allowing that change anymore.
    Edit addition: I also notice that in Control Panel I no longer have a "Display" icon.

    When you open control panel, don't go to Classic View. Under Control Panel Home, you'll find 'APPEARANCE AND PERSONALIZATION' . That's the old Display section.

    No that is not the one I had or want. The one I want is the view where there were several rows across the entire screen. The view is similar to the list view except that the icons are much larger with the titles underneath like the icons on the desktop.

    Did the size of the box change for Control Panel?

    When you go into the control panel, press the 'Alt' key....it will give you the file, edit, view, tools and help bar. Click on 'view' and see if you can change it to the way you want.

    Not sure what I did but when I exited that screen, that did it. Back to the way I like my Control Panel to look. Thank you.
