    I solved the formatting problem. I was using the "ScriptSafe" extension in Chrome and didn't hit "allow" for this site.

    I'm now able to have sentences that don't run into each other.

    Well done.. alas sometimes it seems we have to live with MS inconsistencies- the minor ones that is- or find ways to avoid them.

    I have the same annoying problem, using Classic Shell. Why there are two different instances of Control Panel is a puzzle, and aside from pinning another pathway to the start menu, there doesn't seem to be an easy edit to point to the proper instance since the link on the right-side of the menu will not display its Properties. I would prefer it on the right side to keep "production" applications separate from services, but no joy so far.

    I suspect there is a Registry edit someplace that could be set, but have no idea where.

    In addition, you can use OPTION TWO or OPTION THREE in the tutorial below to set a default view for the Control Panel to always open with by default.
