Hi, 

For some reason, now when I go to Start > Control Panel , it takes me to "All Control Panel Items". It just started recently, I haven't changed any items. I want it to go to the Control Panel when I click Control Panel.

How do I do this? Thanks.

Hello Magdalene,

The change is simply a change in the way the icons are. it's nothing technical. Just  follow the steps given below:

  1. In the upper-right hand corner, you should see "View by:"
  2. Click on that drop down and select "categories". 
  3. That should bring it back to the original view that Windows presents.

Thank  you.

Hi there,
 
By showing all the control panel items, I take it that you want too specific item, not all of them but categorized by function/type.
 
If that is the case then, you should see a small drop down menu on the upper right corner of the Control Panel Screen which is labeled "View by", change that to Categories and you will be all set.
