    Control Panel (XP Professional)

    How do I get the "Other Control Panel Options" to display when they are not displayed.

    When I look at my computer, if the folder view is set to show common tasks, I have an option at the top to
    switch from Clasic to Category view or vice versa. I am working with some folks on there computer
    and when I view the Control Panel, that option is not available.

    Is there a switch somewhere to turn that option on and off?


    Thanks
    Richard

    I think the steps outlined in the post would work, but I have discovered that the machines in questions have some adminitrative restrictions on them.
    The "Classic" view is the only view available.


    Thanks for your help.

    Do you want to disable the restrictions? It is not difficult, but you may be entering waters that you should not be in....

    It would be nice to know how, but I think I will not try to make the changes on these machines.

    Thanks
