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.
- Open Control Panel: Click on the Windows icon in the bottom left of your start screen and click on Control Panel from the pop up menu.
- Open Appearance and Personalization: Double click on Appearance and Personalization.
- Open Folder Options: Double click on Folder Options. This will bring you to a screen similar to Windows XP folder options that used to be accessible from the menu bar.
