No 'Folder Options' in documents

  vin 20:11 05 Jan 2009

Hello there,

Can some one help.

The 'Folder Options' has gone from the Documents/Tools/ Folder options' setting.

Please help.

Don't know why it is not in the Drop down list of Tools but
Is it still available in 'Customize Toolbar' ?
rightclick on blank bit of toolbar and choose Customize
look in the left pane of icons for 'Folder options' and if there add it to toolbar.

Thanks for the tip.
I have followed your tip and it is now on but it is not functional.It does not do any thing when clicked.

Found this fix for you
try these registry fix instructions (with pictures) to get back the Folder Options click here

or/and you could run the system file checker
Click on Start > Run > and then type
sfc /scannow
in the box and click on OK

for info on sfc /scannow click here
(note: there is a space after c and before /)

Thanks Lootvic for the sfc/ scannow idea.
I used this with Malwarebytes and it did the trick.

Thanks again.
