    Settings Menu Modified


    I was working with a computer in our small club and noticed that the Settings menu had been changed from displaying the normal category icons to listing the categories similar to changing the File Explorer view from icons to details. I could not find anyway to revert this. Is anyone aware of a way this can be reset?

    Hi, perhaps a screenshot might help? (Use the icon to the left of the video icon above your post). Thanks.
    And which build are you using- the Creator's upgrade or 1607 (anniversary?)
    Windows key + X, winver.

    Thanks.

    If you shrink the window to a certain point, the icons will go to 'list view'.
    Try maximizing the window.
