On the left side of CP window there should be gun-barrel-
grey-area with two items: "Control Panel" and "See Also".
each should have double arrows. Pick on the control
panel arrows and "Category View" item should appear.

To open Control Panel, click Start and then click Control
Panel. If your computer is set up in Classic view using
the more familiar Start menu, click Start, point to
Settings, and then click Control Panel.

When you first open Control Panel, you will see some of
the most commonly used Control Panel items organized by
category. To find out more information about an item in
Control Panel while in Category view, hold your mouse
pointer over the icon or category name and read the text
that appears. To open one of these items, click its icon
or category name. Some of these items will open to a list
of tasks you can perform, as well as a selection of
individual Control Panel items. For example, when you
click Appearance and Themes, you will see a list of tasks
such as Choose a screen saver along with individual
Control Panel items.

If you open Control Panel and do not see the item you
want, click Switch to Classic View. To open an item,
double-click its icon. To find out more about an item in
Control Panel while in Classic Control Panel view, hold
your mouse pointer over the icon and read the text that
appears.

For additional help on any Control Panel item, search for
it in Help and Support.

I haven't figured out the advantage of category view. What items can you check
this way that you can't check by seeing everything?

(You probably have your category-view switch hidden behind those stupid arrows
that like to hide things you haven't looked at lately).
