I have one gripe with W7 the way Microsoft has compacted control panel under a smaller icon
base i used to like the classic view now you have to look hard to find what you want not easy if your eyesite is not as good as it was.

At the top right of the Control Panel window, look for View By: - change the icons to large. In addition, Search works everywhere, either use the start menu search to find control panel icons without actually opening control panel at all, or search using the bar above the control panel window. You only need type a few letters. It's hard to break out of old habits, but you don't actually need to go looking for things yourself, let the OS do it.
