control panel classic view.

11 Mar 2004
anyone know why i cant use the clasic view for control panel anymore.. seems that after i installed service pack 1 it took away the option.. im guessing this did it as its done it on several foramtes.. just wondering why i find the new look annoying and slower to use.

I'm not sure why it would prevent you from using Classic View. Do you have the 'Show common tasks in folders' option selected when you to go Tools: Options in the Control Panel window? The toggle for classic/category view is found in the common task pane.

Alternatively, you can try this registry fix to force classic view. I haven't tried it myself so I can't guarantee that it's safe.
