    If you're using file explorer to view a folder - or when using the desktop- try
    CTRL + SHIFT + N
    to create a new folder.
    - if the delay is not new to anything you have installed (see shellexview (free) to check that, then if more needed, Autoruns - free, more technical), then you may need to wait for 1903.

    Widely reported problem.

    While we're it, is there some way to move or add the "create new file" entry straight in the first context menu instead the usual submenu?

    Umm, you mean add the whole list of possible new items to the main context menu? That's not a good idea... it gets long enough all too readily.

    I mean, if ever they end up releasing the fix.

    Not necessarily the way Windows hard-coded the list though.

    For example, the mean would be copy-pasting an user's template file in the active folder then virtually pressing F2. You may launch the script from the right click context menu. Many applications add custom entries such "open with..." straight in the main context menu after you install them, so this time the entry name would be "create a new xxx file". The result may be faster that way.

    Have you tried checking what UWP apps you have installed? If you go to the Microsoft Store and click the three dots on the right and choose "My Library"->"Installed" or "All owned". A lot of them come with Windows 10 but it is possible that an installed one is causing the issue. To uninstall search for the app name in the start menu and right click on it. If it isn't one of the built-in UWP apps like Xbox it should have the uninstall option available.
    I registered just to say THANK YOU. In my case it was an app called "Unpacker," I guess it has the same problem as the KODI app. Anyway, Thanks again! If you don't have KODI or Unpacker, take a hard look at your other non MS published apps from the Microsoft Store!

    Hey there, I stumbled upon this problem and read through every single post here. Fortunately some of you mentioned that uninstalling Universial Apps (like Kodi) helped, so it gave me a helpful hint to find a solution - or rather workaround. Since this problem occurs even on fresh installs from what I have seen, basically every user with Windows 10 1809 must be affected by this.
    Well, long story short, here is a way to dramatically reduce the "new" context menu entry delay. What you need to do is to (be willing to) uninstall a few apps that Windows comes with. Here are the PowerShell commands:
    Code:
    Get-AppxPackage *zune* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-AppxPackage *sketch* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-AppxPackage *photos* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-AppxPackage *wallet* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-AppxPackage *solitai* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-AppxPackage *bing* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-AppxPackage *help* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-AppxPackage *3d* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-AppxPackage *reality* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-AppxPackage *office* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Once these apps are removed, wait a few seconds until you can see that the Windows taskbar flickers for a tiny moment. That is the sign that Windows's Explorer acknowledged these changes. Now you can try rightclicking and select "New". Depending on the PC's processor speed, the delay is now either non-existent or at least greatly reduced. Side note: The first three apps in the lines above cause the longest delays.
    Hopefully this helps someone out!
    Thanks Cloudtime your solution was helpful to me!

    I just registered to say THANK YOU, this worked exactly as you described it (and indeed you need to wait for the taskbar to flicker out a bit)!

    Issue started after 1903 update


    This issue started for me after the 1903 update! Takes about 30 seconds to first open file explorer, or right-click items. I can cut and paste fine using the icons in the ribbon, but right-clicking takes forever!
