Folder Options Gone

Everyone at some point have lost their folder options from the tools menu in explorer for various reasons but mostly the reason is virus attack. Now here is a ways or should i say two ways to get it back.

Lets see the first method

--- Click on 'start' and then 'run'.

--- In the 'run' dialog box type gpedit.msc. The Group Policy window will open.

--- Navigate to the following location:
User Configuration> Administrative Templates> Window Components> Windows Explorer

--- In the right pane, find the 'Remove the folder options menu item'. Set its value to 'Not Configured' by double clicking and setting the correct option.

Now if you are familiar with the registry you can try the second one also.

---Open registry editor by typing regedit in the run dialog box.

--- Navigate to the following key:HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\ Microsoft\Windows\CureentVersin\ Policies\ Explorer

--- Find the NoFolderOptions key in right pane. Change its value to 0.

--- If this key does not exist then create a Dword value there with the exact same name and give a value of 0.That should do the trick for you.If you have any questions or want help just post in the comments and i ll get back to you as soon as possible.
