Many of us sometimes find the folder options missing in windows explorer due to some virus or trojan effect. Here's the solution-->

Open Run and then type "gpedit.msc".
Now goto User Configuration > Administrative templates > Windows Component > Windows Explorer.
Click on Windows Explorer you will find the 3rd option on the right side of screen "Removes the Folder Option menu item from the Tools menu"
Just check it, if it is not configured then change it to enable by double clicking on it and after applying again set it to not configured.

I hopes that you will find the option after restarting windows..

Save time with quick computer shortcuts

As a new mom, Allison Brown is always looking for ways to save time. "When I have the chance to sit down at my computer, I need to get at what I'm working on as quickly as possible," says Brown, who uses her computer to keep in touch with family and friends.
Fingers on keyboard near clock
Brown discovered the power of keyboard shortcuts while she was still working. "Before taking my maternity leave, I worked in a bilingual environment," she explains. "I learned the keystrokes for the French accents that were essential in all of my correspondence." She also learned a few other time-saving tricks, such as highlighting text, adding bold to text, and creating new documents.
Not everyone uses keyboard shortcuts to save time, but some people find them easier to use than a mouse, especially when spending any length of time at the computer.
