    "Folder Options" is missing from the "View" menu in Windows Explorer! How do I get it back?? (Where did it go in the first place??!!)

    Go to Start>run and type regedit. Press enter. When the registry opens go to the toolbar to Edit>Find and do a search for NoFolderOptions If you find it, delete it. Also do a asearch for NoBrowserOptions if you don't find the first entry.
    If you find that, delete it.

    In my Registry NoFolcer Options would be found here:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

    In the right pane
