No Tools\Folder Options in Windows Explorer January 27, 2009

I’ve been setting up a new machine recently and ran into a problem whereby the ‘Folder Options’ menu item was missing from the ‘Tools’ menu in Windows explorer. To resolve it I did the following:

  1. Open RegEdit
  2. Go to [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
  3. Set the value of the ‘NoFolderOptions’ key to ‘0’ (zero)
  4. Log out and log in again
