XP Folder File Types

  Charence 21:30 20 May 04


My computer has suddenly decided that all the file type of every folder would become Picture (Windows XP). When I try to hide folders such as "C" and "Program Files" I am unable because the only folder options available are "Print Pictures" when clearly the folder doesn't contain pictures.

I have changed the properties for most folders however, for some Default folders such as MY DOCUMENTS, C, MY MUSIC I cannot access these properties.

How can I revert these folders back to their original settings? And what could have caused the setting change because I had not changed any folder properties.

Thank you,

Try control panel/folder options/view and reset all folders
