    adding desktop folders


    I am running win 10 and I have lost being able to add a folder to my desktop to hold items I want to save. Like I backup my acc'tng. 2 to 3 times a week and save in a folder but now I can't create these folders. I was able to go to open space on desktop and right click and a list would come up and there was new folder add and I would click and it would at this folder then I could name it now I can't. When I go there now the list I get is View, sort by, refresh, display settings and personalize. Does any know how to add a desktop folder?
    Thanks

    Hello Ben, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    If you like, download and merge the .reg files for the listed Folder and Directory items in OPTION TWO of the tutorial below to see if it may help. It will restore the default registry entries for folders.

    Would you elaborate " this doesn't seem to work for win 10" statement ?

    I am using Win 10 Home, and I followed the regedit steps and here is what I have on New.......................
    exactly what the instruction says I should/need to have.
