Different than the 990, Nikon have moved the setup menu from being a sub-menu of record and play mode to being it's own mode (selectable from the mode dial on top of the camera).
Split over two pages, there are a variety of options some of which affect only record mode some of which affect both modes.

Folders allows you to select the folder to use for storage of images, you can also create, rename and delete folders from this menu.
