    Control Panel - can't save Large icons view - defaults to original


    Hi there

    I still prefer using the control panel rather than go hunting around in settings / right mouse click etc etc --especially if Ms have renamed some of the options.

    The control panel is still there in W10 CU edition (1703 X-64 Pro) however if I change the view to large icons which is what I like it reverts back on the next use to the standard by category. I can't find any way to change it -- I'm running from desktop icon as shown.

    1) Preferred view

    Click image for larger version.

    2) Always get this default view

    Click image for larger version.

    Any way to fix it.

    Thanks
