Folder Options X is a small software tool that was built in order to help people in managing a few hidden folder options in your Windows 7 OS.

Surprise-free setup and clean interface

The installation process is a piece of cake, as it does not offer to download any kind of products that are not actually necessary for the app to fully function and it does not last longer than a few seconds.

Once you wrap it up, you are met with a minimal interface which only encloses a few buttons. Although Help contents are not incorporated, it becomes quite clear that all types of users can find their way around it, be they beginners or highly experienced people.

Configurations to tweak

By using Folder Options X, you make it possible to revive some Vista folder options in your Windows 7 operating system. To be more precise, you can disable an entire selected row, display column headers in all views, enable icon reordering and keep focus on the file list view.

All of these configurations can be selected with the help of the built-in check boxes and they can be applied with a click of the button.

Conclusion and performance

The amount of resources required is low, regardless of the process under way and therefore it does not put a strain on the computer’s performance and you can run it alongside other apps without experiencing issues. The response time is quite good, the interface is accessible to all users and our tests did not reveal any bugs or errors.

Taking all of this into consideration, we can safely say Folder Options X is a pretty efficient and reliable piece of software for those who still use a Windows 7 OS.
