    Prevent users from changing View Ribbon Checkbox options


    Is it possible to prevent users from changing View Ribbon Checkbox options?

    I don't want them to uncheck File name extensions and check Hidden items.

    I already enable Do not allow Folder Options to be opened from the Options button on the View tab of the ribbon on GPO but still can uncheck File name extensions and check Hidden items.

    Thank you!

    :)

  2. Some MP3 files prevent the folder they're in from saving "Folder View Settings"!

    Hi Ahmad,

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community.

    I understand the issue that you are facing.

    1. Did you make any changes to the computer prior to this issue?

    Install any pending updates on the pc to check if that helps. Updates are additions to software that can help prevent or fix problems, improve how your computer works, or enhance your computing experience.

    Step 1: I suggest you to refer the below steps to fix the issue.

    1. Go to view in the file ribbon.

    2. Select options

    3.Then click on Change folder and search options.

    4. Under folder view options, click on Apply to folder and yes.

    If issue persist try step 2:

    Step 2: Perform
    System File Check (SFC), and then check if this fixes the issue.

    Follow the steps:

    SFC scan:

    • Press Windows logo + X
    • Select command prompt admin
    • Type ‘sfc /scannow’ (without quotes) and press enter.
    • Restart your computer.

    Prevent users from changing View Ribbon Checkbox options

    How do i unhide a windows 10 hidden user account

    Chris,

    If all you did was hide a folder [in File explorer] then all you have to do is unhide that folder. Judging by your description, you have not changed your user account itself i.e. it is a folder that is hidden not the user account.

    • Open File explorer,
    • in the upper-right, click on the dropdown arrow if necessary so that the ribbon is visible,
    • click on the View menu,
    • set the checkbox for Hidden items,
    • navigate to the folder concerned & clear its hidden property,
    • [optionally] clear the checkbox for Hidden items.
