    File explorer takes 30'' (seconds) to create a new folder


    Hi,

    as in the title file explorer takes 30'' to create a new folder, is there a solution to this?
    I have already verified that the disk is not "sleeping" when I create the folder.
    This happens to me with both ssd and spinning drives, on different pc ( HP and Asus) and also
    with freshly installed systems, this problem i'm having is on windows 10 18.03 fully updated that I installed yesterday

    Is this an acknoledge problem?

    I would like also to ask if there is a Microsoft site/page whith a list of Windows 10 problems/issues
    so that it is possible to verify for problems and to understand if there is some work in progress to resolve the issues.

    Thanks!

    :)

    creating new folder problem in windows 10 creator

    Thanks, the step you mentioned

    Click on the desktop.
    • Press CTRL + SHIFT + N.
    • A new folder should be created.
    • Creating a new folder using a keyboard shortcut.

    It's working for me. But my new folder option is not working anywhere not in desktop as well as not in file explorer. Whenever I am placing my cursor on new folder option, its first spinning for few seconds then goes to close the file
    explorer and refresh the desktop once.

    creating new folder problem in windows 10 creator

    Hi Gudiya,

    The problem you've encountered in creating a folder could be caused by software or program conflict as the issue appeared a few days after installing the Windows 10 Creators update. For us to know if this only occurs when creating a new folder from the desktop,
    we suggest that you try creating a new folder using a keyboard shortcut or from File Explorer. Please refer to the steps below:

    Creating a new folder using a keyboard shortcut.

    • Click on the desktop.
    • Press CTRL + SHIFT + N.
    • A new folder should be created.

    Creating a new folder from File Explorer.

    • Open File Explorer.
    • Hover your mouse on the location where you want to create a new folder.
    • Right-click it, go to New > Folder.

    In case the problem persists, then we suggest that you go ahead and perform a clean boot. Doing so will start your computer using minimal drivers to help us determine what conflict is causing the problem. Check out
    How to perform a clean boot in Windows for the detailed steps.

    Let us know the result so we can further assist you.

    Regards.
