How to Add or Remove New Folder Context Menu in Windows 10


A folder is a location where you can store your files. You can create any number of folders and even store folders inside other folders (subfolders).

By default, you can use the New context menu to create a new folder.

This tutorial will show you how to add a direct New folder context menu for all users to directly create a new folder in Windows 10.

This can be handy to streamline creating a new folder by being one click faster than using the New context menu.

While you must be signed in as an administrator to be able to add or remove this context menu, all users will be able to use the context menu if added.


EXAMPLE: New folder context menu

The New folder context menu (if added) will be available when you right click on the Desktop, or right click on the background of a folder or drive in File Explorer.
