Windows 7 missing "Create New Folder" option

Q: Windows 7 missing "Create New Folder" option

I went to create a new folder under documents and won't, then tried it elsewhere (desktop etc) and it shows me a shortcut to create a new folder, and wants me to browse to it. I don't know where to make it browse to, to even see if it works or not. Anyone know here?
Thanks, Linda

Preferred Solution: Windows 7 missing "Create New Folder" option

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Windows 7 missing "Create New Folder" option

The issue should be caused by damaged or incorrect registry key entry. Please check the following registry value:

1. Click Start, type regedit in Search Bar, and then click regedit in the Programs list.
Note: If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password or click Continue.

2. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\New\

3. Please check if the value for (Default) is: {D969A300-E7FF-11d0-A93B-00A0C90F2719}

Hello,
I am having a peculiar problem on my Windows 7 64-bit, which I noticed this week. Within the "Videos" folder, if I create a folder called "temp", I am not able to create any sub-folder within it through the right click menu. Picture attached. Now the funny thing is, if I create a sub-folder within it (thru linux since my laptop is dual boot), I can see everything in linux (files and folders). If I go back to Windows, the sub-folder is not visible. Only files are visible.

If I change the name of the main folder from "temp" to anything else, the sub-folders are then visible and so it the menu option.

This is not happening anywhere else on the disk, only within "Videos/temp". I have other folders within "Videos" and they behave fine.

Any thoughts?

A:No "Create new folder" option for a specific folder within Videos

Interesting, I don't even get New in the first context menu drop down for any folder created under Videos. This is on Windows 10, so there is something going on there (7, 8 and 10) that Microsoft thinks is important or useful.

How can I create an option in "Send To" when I right-click a file and will send the file to a subfolder of the same name? So if I have a file called Test.txt I want to right click it and "Send To">Test folder.

I am looking for a way to have it automatically create the subfolder of whatever name the file is and move the file there. Seems like this should be possible, but I haven't found a solution.

I have accidentally set the folder of my program file to music folder, when I wanted to change it back there wasn't a "Customize this Folder" option available. No I am very annoyed by this. Please teach me how to change it back to default.

A:"Customize folder" option missing from folder view

Yea, I've had this problem too when making folders. For seemingly no reason at all they just lose their customize tab.

If you really want it back, just make another folder named "Program Files" in another directory, then move all the files into it (Make sure you get hidden ones too) and then delete the old program files folder and move the new one into the old directory on the C drive or wherever you had it before.

Make sure the old folder is empty though and that you don't miss anything!

For the record the more you have running at start up will slow down the boot and do you really want thta??

Also I think when you load softwares a lot will ask if you want them to run at start up so without knowing what you want to add cannot comment on that.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?

So, I was playing a game called Battlefield 2, and it was a little laggy, it was pissing me off so I restarted my computer. I don't know if this screwed something up, but instead of re-booting up, my computer told me that a file in the system 32 folder or around there (It's called system, I think) was corrupted or missing.
Whoop dee doo. I've had like this happen way too much, and I'm incredibly tired of re-formating. I do NOT want to re-format and re-install it, PLEASE, GOD, NO!

So, it told me to put in my windows CD and push "R" to repair it. So, I did, but that gives me a nice command line, and I don't exactly know what to do.

I tried restarted, and now without any error it just brings me to the blue windows XP screen before the computer goes to your desktop, but it just stays there without actually..going to my desktop and letting everything function. So, what do I do now? Is there any way to replace this file, or am I gonna have to re-format?

I mean, there is [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder] and in this folder ("folder") thereīs no "hidden" folder. So I canīt change the value of "hidden" īcause thereīs no "hidden". Help me please, thanks.

in Windows 7 starter.

It was there until today. I tried system restore to no avail.

"Group by" appears when I swap to details view but I don't want that setting.

I always use the "list" setting for files in a folder.

It is greyed out in the View dropdown menu and also in the right click context menu.

What do you reckon?

Can't find a solution here or on google.


Hi all, I've used this excellent forum many times for help without sgning up in the past.

A:"Group By" Folder view option greyed out

Hello Willm, and welcome to Seven Forums.

What are your current "Arrange by" (in library), "View by", "Sort by", and "Group by" set as?

Are you able to use "View by" -> "List" using another option below instead?

Have Vista Home Premium on 2 computers. Working with music on desktop and want to see "bitrate" on the tracks in the music folder but it isn't listed as a detail option. It is on my laptop. Any suggestions on how to get it on the desktop?

A:Lost "bitrate" as detail folder option

Hi ManorMusic and welcome to Vista Forums


This problem occurs when the folder template is set incorrectly. Here is the Sample Music folder set as Documents. You can see that the items available for the columns in Detail view do not include Bit rate.

To correct this, right click on a blank section and select Customize This Folder...

Select the Customize tab, if not already selected. In the first drop down box under Use this folder type as a template: select Music Details and click OK.

Notice that the items available for the columns in Detail view now include Bit rate. Also notice that the toolbar now includes the Play all button, whereas previously it didn't.

We used to have "stereo mix" option that enabled streaming audio recording without having to have the audio playing through the speakers. How do I do that now? What replaces that capability? Who makes my sound card? Why is that not readily available somewhere in Dell land? I can't believe forum searching found pretty much nothing on this.

First things first, thanks to all who can help.....





I need to programmatically make some adjustments to the Internet Explorer security settings. Most of these settings I have found but there are a few I have not been able to get a clear exact location for in the registry. I will be using a .BAT file to make
the adjustments on 100+ PCs.





Here is what I am looking for.....





Under the "Internet  Properties" found in control panel, under the "Privacy" tab there is an "Advanced" option button. When I click on it I get an "Advance Privacy Settings" options box. On it are several settings.
The first setting, "Override automatic cookie handling" needs to be checked in order to access the other options. I can do that by adjusting the DWord value of "PrivacyAdvanced" under the "Internet Settings" key in the registry,
"HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet settings", to be specific.





What I have not been able to find are the registry entries for the "First-party Cookies" "Accept, Block, or Prompt" options, the "Third-party Cookies" "Accept, Block, or Prompt" options, and the "Always allow
session cookies" check box. Please see picture below....















I have seen references to the following settings as being where those options exist, but nothing that explains ... Read more

Right *deep breath*

The first thing that went wrong with my computer was to do with Mcafee On access scan. A week or so ago the little "V" sign stopped appaering in the system tray. Also, when I start the computer the red box that says "welcome to Mcafee" and which version you're running and stuff stopped appearing. I accessed the on access scan through program files and it told me that the on access scanner was enabled and working so I wasn't too fussed that it didn't appear.

Now, yesterday my computer went weird. The "run" option on the start menu disappeared and so did the "Turn Off Computer" red button. Both of them just disappeared. Task manager was also unavailable. When I pressed Ctrl, Alt and delete a box just popped up and said something like "task manager has been disabled by your administrator". I ran Virus Scan, Ad Aware, Spware blaster and Spybot Search and destroy. They all found various stuff on my computer and I got rid of it. After I did that Task Manager worked again, Which was good. However the "turn off computer" and "run" were still missing from the start menu. Well I googled around a bit and realised this guy had the same problem: http://www.bullguard.com/forum/10/qu...nd-_31844.html

He managed to resolve it by logging off and running a program called ewido. I downloaded the trial of ewido and ran it, following his instructions. It found loads of stuff but when I'd quarantined... Read more

A:Hi, computer is messed up. "Run" option missing from start menu, amongst other things

Please download HijackThis. This program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Double-click on the file you just downloaded. Click on the "Unzip" button to install. It will by default install to the directory:C:\PROGRAM FILES\HIJACKTHIS\Run a scan and save the log file. Do not fix anything in HijackThis since they may be harmless.

Post the HijackThis log as a reply to this thread. Make sure to include the System information at the top of the log and please make sure your word wrap is turned off in Notepad (under the Tools menu) before copying the log.

i am so sad (And pissed off)

for the past 4 1/2 hours i have been trying to fix my computer. i logged onto it this morning and all of a sudden, most were suddenly unrecognized by Windows. however, Internet Explorer worked, and when i clicked on a specific file or folder, it open in its respective program or in the case of a folder, it opened up successfully.

after a couple hours i got into the folder options and created the ".exe" and ".lnk" file extensions and the icons on my desktop went back to normal. however, i STILL cannot execute any of the actual PROGRAMS on their own. whenever i click on a PROGRAM, it says the same stupid thing about me needing to create an association in folder options. but personally i do not know how to do that. oh yes, keep in mind i have TRIED to do regedit, its not supported cuz its an exe, and oh yeah, sysem restore dont work either

Hello all,

I had hoped you could help me with the following problem.

When I try to create a new folder or copy and try to paste a file, an error occurs "explorer.exe" and immediately stops/ blocks the action. Also, pressing 'file' is enough to make it crash.

It's very frustrating as I need to copy and paste quite alot!

Can you help?

Thanks!

Btw: I checked with malaware for infected items, but nothing came up!

For reasons unknown, when I click "New Folder" on the toolbar (via WIndows Explorer or any window where this appears on the Toolbar/Command bar) nothing happens. I'm unable to create a new folder in the window that's open. Doesn't matter where I try this, it's not working.

I'm logged in with my regular User profile, which has Admin privileges. Can you help?

(It isn't that the "New Folder" words don't appear on the toolbar ... it's just that it doesn't work to create a new folder in the window.) I can see other files in the folder, as well as other previous folders, but I can't create any new folders where I'd like them. I've looked in the Folder Options, and everything looks fine.

HELP Please?

A:"New Folder" problem; Unable to create from clicking this on toolbar

Hello wildfire, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Are you able to right click on an empty area in the folder and click on New -> Folder to create one?

For now, you might see if using step 5 in the tutorial below to restore New Folder and it's default registry entries may help.New Context Menu - Remove & Restore Default Menu Items

This problem is simly driving me crazy.

here is the problem as direct as possible...

I have an Asus K8V mobo(standard)

On this board there is 2 controller that can use the SATA interface.

One is branded VIA and work flawesly and the other one is from Promise. (376 here)

I do have many hard disks and they all have the 1,5 GB/s jumper on, they all work perfectly on the Via controller...

But i have more then 2 sata device wich mean i need to run the promise controller in IDE mode.. or whatever its called (none-raid)

1 DVD burner sata, 1 HDD sata are on the Via controller. (what ever is plugged there work)

I now need to use the Promise controller in IDE MODE but there is no way i can do this since i dont have the option "operating mode : ide mode" in my advenced option from the bios...

It looks like i'm lock in raid mode. Sometime i just wish RAID never existed in the PC world.

I'm really about to give up on that since i must have wasted a considerable amount of time on that..

I do have the bios 1007 , v.2.54 from asus My Promise chip is identified as PDC203376.

Pls dont tell me i need driver in windows cause i know i need, and since im under winxp64 it might not work at all in the end but i'm not there yet since i dont even see the HDD in my BOOT DEVICE PREORITY list form the bios..

Thks, hope you guys have some clues for me, i'm starting to wonder if downgrading the bios, or if the K8v none deluxe is the problem.

See ya,

Best wis... Read more

Hi, my computer crashed a couple hours ago out of nowhere and when it restarted itself I got the dreaded "BOOTMGR is missing" message. I'm running Windows Vista 32-bit. I put my Windows recovery disc in and entered the information for language, time and currency, and keyboard input. Then it tries to go directly to installing Windows. I don't have an option for repairing it. I can't afford to reinstall as I have way too much stuff to lose and it would be devastating. There should be an option after that first screen on the lower left so i can repair instead of install. I'm desperate and time is of the essence as I was working on something I need done for tomorrow. I tried to follow the steps here... http://cyberst0rm.blogspot.com/2007/04/how-to-fix-bootmgr-is-missing-in.html , but yeah, like i said, it doesn't give me an option to repair after that first screen. Please help, I'm starting to tear out my hair!
