Re-arrangement of control panel items

2019-07-03, 19:42 PM

I have the Win 7 operating system on my Lenovo W530 laptop. The way Control Panel works is really getting annoying. Everytime I re-enter it it re-arranges the items in control panel. As a result I have to keep searching for what I want, things like Display, System, Mouse, etc. Is there a way to lock the items in place? I have the items set to small icons.

Hi Stanlep! 


Welcome to the community forums. Unfortunately, you can't rearrange/personalize control panel icons.


To get things easier. Just a tip. 


Create a folder in Desktop and create a shortcut of the control panel items that you usually access and put it all in the Folder you created in desktop. That way you can personalize the icons the way you like it to be.
