Set one machine like you want. Then use Copy Setting Wizard to create a Reg file with all the settings. Go to other machine and run this reg file.
Now both machine should show same options/settings.
I could try that, but its much more complex than I was hoping for. Isn't there some way to reset the UI so that I have icons and such?
I found this thread with the exact same problem (including the same loss of icons):
But I could not get that solution to work in 2015. Any ideas?
I apologise in advance if the following comment comes across as being mean, but ...
If you find using the Copy Settings Wizard too complex to use, then the alternatives for resetting the UI would seem impossible.
What graphics cards are installed in the computers? Using non-approved cards or incorrect drivers could account for UI differences.
Not literally too complex to use, it just seems like a bizarre and inefficient way to fix a problem with the UI.
