"My Computer" has suddenly changed

  ImAFlump 19:48 27 Sep 2007

I use Windows XP, SP2 and when I clicked on My Computer the other day the layout/view had changed. It used to have everything in sections e.g. Hard Drives, removable drives...but now It's just a list. Does anybody know how to change it back? I've looked in View and all sorts but can't figure it out. I haven't instaedd or changed any settings recently, it just changed. I've used System Restore to try and change it back, but it didn't work.

Yeah, I've tried that...I thought it was that at first, but I've tried all the different view types, but none of them restore it. It used to have the Documents folders at the top, then Hard Drives underneath, then underneath that would be removable drives and printers underneath that. In each section all the relevent hardware would appear.

In Windows Explorer click on a blanck space in the right pane and on the pop up menu tick TYPE in the side list.
Repeat that process but this time tick SHOW IN GROUPS
