    Cannot create New Folder in File Explorer


    It works fine, but suddenly today the New menu disappeared from my click menu when I click on any blank place in a folder. What's worse, if I click the New Folder button under the File Explorer top menu, there is no response. In the end, I can only create new folders using command lines but not by the usual shortcuts. Any thoughts to fix this problem? Thanks.

    Hello i2000s,

    If "New" is completely gone from the context menu, then you might see if using the tutorial below may be able to restore it.

    Thank you, Brink! The Windows 7 solution works on Windows 10 in my case! I only tried adding the New registration key before asking for help, but seems the tool provided in the link also added the Gadgets registration key to make the trick
