Folder Icons option has gone

Please can some one help me with this as it is driving me mad!!!!

I have a folder on my pc named job book inside there is a list for example 1-10 of jobs that we are doing, and once invoiced I right click on the job, properties, customize then folder icon. I change the job from a yellow file to a tick so we know it has been invoiced.

But when I try and do it now, the option to change the folder icon has just gone, cant anyone tell me how to get it back...

Many thanks

Hello Owlhouse, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you like, as an alternative for now, you could use the "Choose File" option under "Folder pictures" to have the tick show in the folder.

Hope this helps some,
