    How to create a new folder, the Windows 7 way

    I upgraded to Win10 eight weeks ago, then went to Norway. I've just got back, and now I've been using Win10 for less than an hour. I've had CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION, and Chrome hangs whenever I hit "Submit" here. So I'm keeping this short:
    What's the Win10 equivalent of navigating to a folder, right clicking the folder icon then selecting "New Folder". Win 10 isn't giving me the "New Folder" option.

    You should be able to restore the new folder item with this,

    New Context Menu - Restore Default Items in Windows 10

    There is also a new folder in the ribbon,

    Thanks for the suggestions. I'll make a note of them and apply the .reg fix when I'm comfortable with Windows 10. I've had a few unsettling experiences in my first few hours of Win10 use, so I'm avoiding registry changes right now.

    I once made a registry change that had a side effect of blocking sounds created by my applications. Because my programs rarely beep, I didn't discover the problem until a few months later... all my old restore points were long gone. It took me over a year to research the problem and find the solution.
    Unfortunately, it took me less than a month to forget all about this, and to apply the registry update again...
    The second time around, it took another year to find the fix, and I vowed to be wary of registry fixes in future!
