Recently I upgraded to Windows 7 which I installed after reformatting my HD.  Now I am trying to customize the folder view in Windows Explorer.  However, when I go to Tools Menu > Folder options > View tab > Folder View, the "Apply to Folders" button is always grayed out thus preventing me from applying the changes to all folders.  Any suggestions on what may be causing this?
