Windows 7: SP1 installed and I lost choice to "Customize folders' in Docs

SP1 installed and I lost choice to "Customize folders' in Docs

Being new to this forum, although I've read about customizing until I'm blind and I haven't found the answer to my question. I like to customize my folders in my docs, and I've lost that choice, I'm running W7 Premium 64 bit. Under veiw there use to be the choice to customize. I could use a "folder jpg" or I could make my own icon and use that. I've tried right clicking and going into properties and a choice to customize should be there and it isn't. Is there any way I can get the customize choice back. Thanks Belle5737

Although I didn't contribute to the thread, may I say how pleasant it is to read comments such as this.

It does make everyone's efforts more worthwhile.
