Windows 7: I can't arrange my files. Only by folder.

I can't arrange my files. Only by folder.

Why is this?

I go to my pictures, music etc.. On the top right I can't change the "Arrange by" to anything other than the default "Folder".

Soooo annoying.

Eh, I uploaded it to a file hosting site. Not sure why you cant see it. But here I'll do it the other way.

Now what I mean is, when I try to click on the other options, it just makes a click noise and doesn't apply. Never used to do that.
