Regardless of what software I use, the option to create a new folder is missing.

For example, when I right click on the desktop, and left click "New", there is about 20 choices in the context menu, but "Folder" is not there.

When I click on Windows Explorer and click File, New, the option to create a new folder does not appear.

What could I have done to make the "Folder" option disappear, and how can I bring it back?


Thank you for your help!

Thank you!  Note:  After I applied the fix to the registry, I tried to create a new folder and could not.  However, after restarting the computer, I was then able to create to folders.
