Modifying folder options in Windows Vista is a bit different than Windows XP and may throw you off if you are not familiar with how to modify these options. Instead of modifying the options through the toolbar it is done through the control panel in Windows Vista. Follow the simple steps below to modify the same types of folder options as Windows XP.
