Please say they didn't get rid of Classic View for the Control Panel. Does anyone know how I can change to Classic View in R2?

I struggled with this too recently. Leave it for this genius to figure how to screw with a bad menu program.

Fortunately there is a solution, http://classicshell.sourceforge.net/

Tested on Windows 7 and Windows 2008 64 bits on both without any issues.

As far as I can see they got rid of all the classic views in R2.

Looks like this is for the start menu, not the control panel... but I haven't downloaded it, so I might be wrong. Verify, please? –  HopelessN00b Oct 11 '12 at 16:33
