This is either a bug or delibirate.
I'm wondering if there is a way to restore it in the registry and if anyone knows how to do it.

you might try Select All from:
A utility to add Select All to the Explorer context menu. Also adds an Invert Selection option to the context menu.
its says 200/XP but it worked in Vista for me just now so it might just work in 7 too.

Invert selection is back in for Win7 as of the RC.
I am glad to see the function back, and glad to hear my clicks on that link arent being ignored.
Excellent idea the send feedback button, easy to use too.

Another feature that was removed is "Restore Previous Folders at Logon". I really like this feature.
MS just deliberately removes things that people get used to.

I thought I was the only person who cared about that feature, considering how little airtime its removal seems to be getting ...

Well, what a surprise! Although the option is gone from Folder Settings, the good-old registry tweak from XP still works in Windows 7.
Just merge this to your registry and you get back "Restore Previous Folders at Logon".
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 ;Restore Explorer Windows at Logon [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced] "PersistBrowsers"=dword:00000001
