    unable to create new folder anywhere


    Hello
    Lately I have been facing this problem of not being able to create new folder. The "New" option in the right click is missing and I am not able to create anything new. Please somebody help me.

    There is an easier way....right click on Documents and choose New Folder.

    When I need a new folder like in downloads, docs or pictures I just click on the icon for it and once where you want it I right click and rename it

    Also, if the tutorial does not apply, please read this one. This one is at least one year old, but the procedures should still apply.
