I think you mean this optimize (rather than folder options):
"Right click folder > Properties > Customise tab > Drop down"

If so then I'll leave it to others because I have run into this hang up from Windows 95 onwards. I get the same myself in Win 8.1 and in my opinion it is a Windows bug that either most folk "live with" or a feature they don't use.

EDIT:
What I find is that it will change but not keep it's setting for long.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Glad to hear it, thanks. I was unsure whether you meant folder views or folder options but Johnw covered both.
