    Still not working.
    Have you got teamviewer? I'll show you the problem may be easier.
    My bad, I checked my Documents folder and it was set as shown in your screen shot. However, The Documents Properties Page does not show any other tabs ie. Sharing, Security, Location, Customize

    Now we are getting somewhere
    I am guessing my account does not have FULL ADMIN PERMISSIONS?

    Yet it says my account is admin, I have also tried the Standard account and still does not work.
    Strange.

    OK. let's open the Control Panel->Folder Options. In each tab, click on Restore Defaults to see if you can get those tabs back.

    If you open the registry and look under:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
    Do you see anything on the right hand side related to SecurityTab, LocationTab etc... ?

    No, Explorer not Ext but I notice that you did not even have this key. May be it is Windows 8 and I am using Windows 8.1 Pro.
    Can you login the new user that you created and check if you have the Explorer key.
