Unable to find the folder options in the files menu

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

For the last 3 days I have been unable to find the folder option in the files menu.

Some of my very private files are kept there but I am not able to get to them because I have to press the folder option first. I am at with ends.

Can anyone help me out?

I think that your windows is corrupted and you need to repair it. But before doing that, try the following instructions, that might help you out before you do the repairing process which is quite lengthy.

What do you want to do with your very private files? do you want to hide them or are they already hidden and you want to unhide them? If you want to unhide them just do the following

  • Open CMD, go to that folder where are your private files are placed. Once you are there type the following command
  • attrib -a -h -s -r *.* /s /d OR attrib[file/folder] -r -a -s -h . These commands were first taught to me by my teacher. Actually what it does is that it clears all the attributes of a folder or a file.

If you can't figure out how to do this then just do the following:

  • %systemroot%system32control.exe/ name Microsoft.FolderOptions

These two will definitely solve your problem.
