  1. Unable to create new folders on my desktop...how do I reinstate?


    Recently I have been unable to create new desktop folders. It's probably connected to some action on my part, but I don't know what, and nothing unusual had happened, computer-wise. I have excellent multi-layered internet security with ongoing tracking, cookies, registry, etc., clean-up, and driver updates. I've tried some online solutions but no luck. I'm on the computer a lot, and this has become not only annoying but unhandy. So, I now turn to the Microsoft community for assistance. If there's anyone who can assist, please be advised I'm not particularly computer savvy. Any help is greatly

    :)

  2. 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.

    I tried the first suggestion, no response.
    I cannot create a new user because when I tried to update our new email address I did something wrong and was locked out for 30 days. Until April 1

    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.
