How do I customize the Control Panel? Or is this an error? (I do apologize for the 'stupid' question, but I'm still a little new with 7). It currently looks like this...

The "bar" on the left-hand side is missing... It was so beautiful in contrast to Vista's.

Please do not misconstrue Windows 7 license sales as actual sales of the operating system. PCs are bundled with Windows 7, and count towards the sales figures.

AFAIK the Control Panel screen doesn't allow any easy changes.

Hi Kelsenellenelvian:

I unwillingly omitted that option.
Thanks for your correction.

You can add this registry key to always show menus:

First option:

Menus.reg
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]
"AlwaysShowMenus"=dword:00000001

2nd option:
Or browse to: Control Panel | Appearance and personalization | Folder Options | Display . And select : Always show menus

*Edit: But about the left pane color (image) like Vista...It's not the same on Windows 7!

*Edit 2: You can change the left pane image inside: %windir%\System32\shell32.dll -> Bitmap -> 632 & 633

For Windows 7 OS: SetProductKey.rar (fr-FR/en-US. Integrate keys).
