Folder options in Windows 7

In a lot of things, Windows 7 is different from Windows XP.

Just the other day I needed to display the extension of all files. This could be done easily in XP with folders options. But in Windows 7, where do I find the "Folder Options".
For folder options on Windows 7, follow the below steps.
  1.  Start (the windows icon at the bottom left corner) -> Control Panel
  2. If you can't find "Folder Options" anywhere, locate the "View by:" title at the top right corner. It must be set to Category for you to not see Folder options. Change it to either "Large Icons" or "Small Icons".
  3. You'll now be able to see "Folder Options". You can play with it all you want.
