How interesting.  I just followed your directions.  I know this isn't the 
question you were answering from the other lister, but I wonder what makes it 
desirable to have the control panel appear in My Computer.  Is there any 
advantage apart from past practice or that vaunted characteristic of the PC 
that more than one solution should be available for any problem?  I won't have 
my control panel show up in My Computer until I understand the benefit.

      To have Control pannel appear in your computer, do the following:
  1. Go to the start menu (press the windows key)
  2. Hit the letter "s" (3 times in my case) until you hear "settings submenu."
  3. Hit the right arrow key and you should hear "control pannel.
  4. press enter.
  5. Cursor down to folder options.
  6. Control tab to the view page.
  7. Tab once and this will put you in a tree view.
  8. Arrow down until you hear "show control pannel in my computer."
  It will likely say "off" in your case. Hit the spacebar and this should turn 
this feature on.
  You should now see your control pannel in my computer.
