As said it title...the folder view gives options for music folders. I've tried going into Options/Folder Options and restoring default, but this doesn't work. I'm sure this happened before and I had to go into config something but can't remember. I'd appreciate any help.

You can try running this little script that some smart person created: TaskPaneFix.zip

You can read the associated Usenet post here.

I had this same problem but I was able to fix it. The solution was, as the simple ones usually turn out to be, incredible simple. This was after I unsuccessfully tried to move My Documents to a different location (same issue there), etc.

1. Open a folder that you can change to "File and Folder Tasks"
2. Tools menu: Folder Options: View tab.
3. First click "Reset all Folders" and if that doesn't work (and you have the opened folder set the way you like it) click "Apply to All Folders"

Worked for me. . . .
