Windows 10: Cannot create New Folder in File Explorer Solved

    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 :)
