Remove "Folder Options" from Tools menu in Windows XP

I have tried this with Windows XP pro, and I'm not sure whether this will work with other XP variants.

Removing the "Folder Options" menu involves modifying the Windows Group Policy editor (gpedit.msc).

Just follow the below listed steps.

1. Go to Start >> Run

Type gpedit.msc and press Enter.

2. In the resulting window, navigate to the folderUser Configuration >> Administrative Templates >> Windows Components >> Windows Explorer.

Look for the key named "Removes the Folder Options menu from the Tools Menu".Double-click the key and select Enable.

Click OK.

3. To display the "Folder Options" menu, follow the previous steps and select the Not Configured option for the "Removes the Folder Options menu from the Tools Menu" key.
