    Hey everyone,

    I'm looking for a couple of registry setting in Windows 8.1; specifically the settings for the Category View, Large Icons View and Small Icons View in control panel.

    Also would these same registry entries be used in 8?

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ControlPanel\AllItemsIconView

    Set this to 1 to get small icons and 0 for large icons. Works in Windows 8.1. Dont know about the Category view.
