(Quick Tip) How to access Folder options through command prompt

Having trouble accessing windows programs like folder options, registry, msconfig and others? This tip will help you work around on some annoyances that we encounter when our computer is very slow and troubled with viruses.

If you can't launch by clicking, let's try using the command prompt by typing:
control folders

control.exe /name Microsoft.FolderOptions

As you can see, the Folder options will appear and for another quick tip, each tab has a command prompt equivalent as shown below:
Folder option View Tab:
rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Options_RunDLL 7

Folder Option Search Tab:
rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Options_RunDLL 2

Enabling the option through the Tools Menu (needs restart)

Reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer /v NoFolderOptions /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

So, if your having trouble accessing the part of windows, try the feature above by going to your Run Window or command prompt.

That's it!
