Start / Control Panel selection

    Start / Control Panel selection

    When I click on Start / Control Panel I get 'All Control Panel Items'.

    How can I change this so I go into just 'Control Panel'?

    Not sure what you mean by 'All Control Panel Items' if all items are appearing, click by View by Category.

    I set my Control Panel as a menu on the Start list, moving the mouse over the right arrow or clicking it gets a fly-out that lists all the applications and I can choose the one I want instead of opening Control Panel then finding it.

    Using the Desktop toolbar in the taskbar gives you the best of both options, view by category and the individual items fly-out lists.

Why is it that the last time I went to the control panel to uninstall a program it was no longer listed, And a lot of my programs weren't listed. Why is this ? it makes it impossible to uninstall most of my programs that I no longer want. I hate Windows 8.
