Loss of 'View' facility in Windows Explorer menu bar

Hi All,

Like most people I expect, I don't keep a close watch on what is happening to the options given in any typical menu bar across the top of a page, so I didn't notice when the choices given above Windows Explorer folders changed and the 'View' option disappeared. This meant that I could no longer arrange the folder items in alphabetical or date order. Instead there is an 'Organize' option which does not do the business.

I have a feeling that I've accidentally called down a style of some sort which does not contain the required options in its menu bar. Anybody any idea how I recall the 'View' option and regain the ability to order the contents of folders? Thank you in anticipation.

Maybe you've lost your menu bar?

If so click on Organise,go to Layout and make sure Menu Bar is ticked.

You're not the first and won't be the last.

All to do with guessing that the OS was Win 7. Or either having ESP.

Wish I could do that.

Pure guesswork - I wasn't at all sure I was even in the right ball park - hence the question mark.

I don't claim any special powers - just sheer genius!!
