It shows up right away for me. The only thing I can think of would be to select "Customize" after you've hit the down arrows and de-select some of the ones that are currently selected (assuming there are some you don't use often). That should shorten the list and show "Properties" right away. If that doesn't work then you probably have something else going on, like maybe having your icon size set to something other than 100%.
Well damn. I SWEAR I looked for that yesterday and didn't see it. But it is now correct. TY !!
