I upgraded from vista to windows 7, and the control panel had a major overhaul... I know I can have small and large icons... but in the "view" next to file ect.. all the other options are grayed out.

Is there anyway to get those options back... maybe even get the windows vista classic control panel back?

Well, from what I can tell and searching the web, you are out of luck.

The 'classic' view of categories you can get back though. From the pull-down for icon size, select the TOP item, Categories. That should do it.
