    I can not create a new folder. I have tried the right click and new, but "new folder" is not on the list.
    It worked at one time, but doesn't work now.
    I tried the "system restore", but for some reason my computer continues to delete the old restore points. Whenever it creates a new restore point, it deletes the previous restore points. I would also like help with this, if possible.
    Can anyone tell me how to create a new folder, if it is not on the list? Or how can I get it back on the list?
    I would appreciate any help anyone can give me.
    Thank you

    New command missing in Windows Explorer

    When you click the File menu in Windows Explorer, the New command may be missing.
    When you right-click the desktop, the New command may be missing from the context menu.

    This behavior can occur if a registry key is damaged or contains an incorrect value.

    Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

    I went to the sites you had listed. They did not help me to learn how to fix the problem. One site was about the registry. To check to see if the default is there. It is.
    Can anyone tell me what I can do to fix the problem. Can anyone tell me what I can do to make it so I can, once again, create new folders?
    Thank you for your help.
