Changing From Classic View

Hello, my friend's display changed to Classic View when she got on
today. It used to be the Windows XP View. She tried going to
Appearance and Themes>Display, but the only options were My Current
Theme, Windows Classic, More Themes Online, and Browse.

She also tried Appearance and Themes>Taskbar and Start Menu, but Start
Menu was already selected. If it makes any difference, she has a
laptop. Does anyone know how to change it back to the Windows XP View?

Others might have an easier way but I'd use the built in restore function of
Windows. Restore to a day/time prior to the problem showing up and see if
that takes care of the problem.

To find it go to "Start" and pick "Help and Support".

From there you choose "Undo changes to your computer with System Restore".

Then make sure the "Restore my computer to an earlier time" has a dot in it
and click on the "Next" button. From there pick a date/time that is before
the problem started occurring and let the system try to fix itself.

Maybe one of these?

Right click on the start button & choose properties, under the start menu
tab choose the 'start menu' option rather than 'classic start menu'.
HTH,
