    display Settings as for Win7 small icons - show all items


    I find it annoying each time I use Settings to then do a search in order to find what I want. The existing icons aren't explicit it what it contains. EG as the first icon includes Apps I used it for ""uninstall but it isn't there. it's in some other icon. So I have to return to the Settings page, then search.
    Windows 7 allowed changing from Category (similar to current Win 10 Settings) to "Small Icons", which displays all settings items on one page.
    How can I set up Win 10 settings to do the same?

    :)

    Taskbar settings - how to emulate Win7 and keep all app shortcut icons to the left of all...: Hi all- Just migrated from Win7 to Win10.
