    -ON / -OFF After each Folder Option in Windows 10


    Hello,

    After the update to Windows 10 anniversary update one of my PCs shows a –ON or –OFF at the end of each “Advanced Setting” in the “Folder Options”, “View” tab.

    So; in “Folder Options” under “Advanced settings”, in the scroll list there is either a –ON or –OFF after each option such as “Always show icons, never thumbnails-OFF”. If the option is ticked –ON is displayed and –OFF if un-ticked.
    Folder options are working fine, but this –ON / -OFF is annoying me.

    Where is the setting to turn this feature off?

    I have googled it but no answers.

    Regards

    John

    Windows 10 Pro,

    I just pulled up my FOLDER OPTIONS tab and I do not have any of those ON or OFF indications in any of menu items. In fact, your menu looks completely different than mine because mine is labeled "File Explorer Options."

    Could you type winver in run box and post the screenshot. Also you might want to open an elevated cmd prompt and type sfc /scannow..

    Hello..
    Regarding “File Explorer Options” and “Folder Options”... Same thing different name.
    If you open “File Explorer Options” from Control Panel the title is “File Explorer Options”..
    If you open "File Explorer / My Computer" then click File > Change Folder and search Options, it’s called “Folder Options”.

    FYI, Windows 10 Version 1607 (OS Build 14393.105)

    Also Looked at "Ease of Access Centre" and the Magnifier is off, but the –ON or –OFF is still there.

    Will try the "sfc /scannow" and get back to you.. Thanks

    Regards
    John

    Hello.
    Finally found the app that’s causing this issue, Microsoft’s “Speech Recognition”.
    I tried the other fixes that the members mentioned like “sfc /scannow” but this didn’t fix it, also the “Magnifier” in Ease of Access Centre was turned off on my system.
    After an hour of playing in “Ease of Access Centre” I opened “Speech Recognition” which immediately came up with an error. I didn’t note the error, but something along the lines of “Your audio hardware is not configured”. I checked the Soundcard drivers and all was ok, then plugged in a microphone and Speech Recognition started up fine, went through the setup process and then closed the app, checked “Folder Options” and NO more –ON or –OFF after each setting.
    Find it strange as I have never used “Ease of Access Centre” or “Speech Recognition” before this issue.
    Regards
    John

    Thanks, that's an odd one.
