How was the Windows 95 control panel form made ?
Which control container was used?  How were the icons
placed on the form? Is the text below the icons a label?
What property they used to highlight the icons when the
text or the icon is clicked? Is this a third party object?

The control in the Windows Control Panel as well as the Explorer (Win95/NT4.0) is the 'ListView' control which can be found in  omCtl32.ocx.  This file is installed when you install Visual Basic.

The ListView control has different view settings (the ones you can find in Explorer.

On-line help will show you how to use this control.

Add the control through the 'Components' menuitem under 'Project' menu (VB5)

Look for 'Microsoft Windows Common Controls'

Hope this answers your question
