how to switch to classic tray view in AutoCAD 2014

Is there a way to switch to the classic tray view in AutoCAD 2014?  What I am referring to as "classic" was the tray that had the more rectangular icons with words in them as opposed to graphics.  The buttons would highlight if active.  To ensure I am clear on what I am referring to as the "tray": the new tray has smaller, square icons, shown below.

Right click on it, options will show.

In other releases you could just right click on any of the buttons and uncheck the "Use Icons" option. This doesn't work with 2014?

Right-click on any of those icons and uncheck the box USE ICONS.

Already tried a right-click, nothing in that pop-up box seems to switch it back to classic view.

You can't change the icons: it's text or the icons already on display.

Ah, OK, it works.  If I right click an actual icon it works.  What I was doing was right clicking on the empty tray and unchecking the "services" icons. 

 

Thanks guys!  I like the classic tray a lot better.  Glad AutoDesk gives us so many options!

That's AutoCAD for mac, isn't it?  You're looking at Classic.
