    Question on Missing Customize Tab in Folder Properties Tutorial


    I am trying to change the icons on the Desktop and the Properties window is missing the Customize tab. I also tried going to the "users\me\Desktop" path in Win Explorer to bring the Properties window up and it is also missing there.
    There is a great Tutorial on how to correct this problem, but it may need to be modified. It says to set the dword "PropertyBag" to 0 or 1. I am missing the PropertyBag entry. Do I create it first and then set the dword value? I am hesitant in changing the Registry unless I know the change is correct. If I do create it first, then I suggest that the tutorial be changed to include the fact that it needs to be created if missing.
    Thanks

  4. Question on Missing Customize Tab in Folder Properties Tutorial

    Sharing tab missing in Folder Properties on Windows 10

    When right clicking on any folder and selecting properties, the tab "Sharing" is missing.

    Things I have tried:

    • Checking "Use Sharing Wizard (Recommended)" in Folder Options
    • Enabling Network discovery and Sharing in Network settings
    • Clicking Share at the top and selecting "Advanced Sharing Options"
    None of these have worked.
