Windows 7: Folder lost sort arrow at top

Folder lost sort arrow at top

I created a folder yesterday and today the sort arrow at the top went away.
I had moved scanned docs (pdf) from a shared file folder we use for our copy machine to the new folder to rename and manage. All was fine yesterday and now today the sort arrow and column header are gone. All other folders are fine.
Using Office 365

Explorer Folder Expand Arrow Now Plus Sign
It seems that a recent auto-update of some Windows 7 items changed my PC looks. The font of the items in the Start menu looks different and in Windows Explorer, the "arrows" to expand a folder is now a "plus sign". How do I get back to the looks I had prior to this change? Thanks anyone.
