  1. Hi,
    'My Computer', when usually opened show the User Documents and Shared Documents then the Drives...etc. in a neat orderly fashion. I installed a new icon pack (don't know if this had anything to do with it) and now when i open it it shows everything as if they were just files in a folder. You know just in line as icons.
    Help to return to normal please!!
    Thank You!!

    when you open it click View in the Menu Bar at the top, then try clicking each of the ways it can be viewed, Thumbnails, Tiles, icons, etc. you see listed to find what you like (get it back to way it was)

    What OS you have? XP or Vista..

    XP under the my computer
    right click anywhere
    click on view
    change it to > Tiles
    click on arrange icons by > type
    then check show in groups

    These are the default for Windows OS.
