Chapter 5. Organizing Files and Folders > Setting Folder Options

Setting Folder Options

Windows offers a trainload of options that control how folders appear and behave. Some options are trivial, but others are significant—and their default values can make Windows harder to use.

To set folder options:

1.
In Windows Explorer, choose Tools > Folder Options > View tab (Figure 5.23).

Figure 5.23. In Folder Options View Advanced, you may have to double-click the icons in the list to display subordinate options.


or

In Control Panel, choose Appearance and Themes > Folder Options > View tab.

2.
In the Advanced Settings list, select the desired options (Table 5.2, next page).

Changes affect all Explorer windows.

3.
To restore the settings to their factory values, click Restore Defaults.

4.
Click OK (or Apply).
