Windows Server 2019 Domain (servers and workstations) is only offering New Folder when right-clicking in the root of the C drive and any pre-existing folders in the root. If I create a new folder then I have the option to add any other item in the normal contextual menu (i.e. New Folder, Shortcut, Word Document, Zip file, etc.). If I modify the Registry and disable HKEY_LM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\EnableLUA then the normal contextual menu items return. Why/When did Microsoft make this change and is there a different fix out there that can be implemented at the domain level?
