What are folder options?



I have two folders on the deaktop. One for me and one forr my wife. We use these folders for easy access to programs and files that we often use.

I have the floders properties set to show ICONS. Every now and then they chnage to TILES. I have not found a common task that I am performing that I can tie to the changing of the icons to tiles.

It may go for days or weeks with no change, and then it may happen in a 24 hour period after I reset them to icons.
