Windows 10: Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14959 for PC and Mobile Insider
Annoying, Control Panel always defaults to Category View. Every time I use it I change to Small Icons View, do what I came to do, close it, and next time when opened it's Category View again.
Small icons stays, if selected, here. Opened, closed and opened again.
If you like, you can use an option in the tutorial below to set a default view for the Control Panel to always open with by default.

I think the culprit is and was the Clover shell for File Explorer I use. If so, the benefits of Clover (tabbing, favourites) outweigh this small annoying detail.
Using the Group Policy option from your tut it now sticks using small icons opening Control Panel in any other way, but opening it from File Explorer address bar (see screenshot) it always defaults to Group View.

after you had read through it I hope
A nice, ice cold beer.
