    I forgot what happened as it was like a year ago, but I did something which changed the layout of MY COMPUTER.

    Right now, it's just 2 rows of icons, but how do I get it back to this?:

    ^ the above is not my computer's my computer. xD
    As you can see, there are seperations with "Files stored on this computer", etc.

    Can someone help me change it back?

    Thanks!

    Open the "My Computer" window, select "View" and set it to "Tiles". Set "Arrange Icons by" to "Type". That should put it the way you like it....I just tested it and it will look like the pic you posted.

    Hope that helps ya! [​IMG]

    I use the "Details" setting myself. It lines up all the info nicely.
