Windows 7: Lost Choices on Down Arrow eg Icon size etc

Lost Choices on Down Arrow eg Icon size etc

Hi...I'm a newbie user of Windows 7 - 64-bit. When I click on Windows Explorer>Desktop etc at top right, there's an down arrow which allows choice of Icons: large/medium etc and List/Details. When I click on the arrow all I get is a blank 'roll-down' and of course no choices. Can anyone help me rectify this? Many thanks

Hello Kwil, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if running a sfc /scannow command may be able to help if it was corrupted system file at fault.

If that didn't help, then you could do a system restore using a restore point dated before you had this issue to hopefully undo and fix it.

Hope this helps for now,
