Creating a new folder

Hi guys,
I am trying to create a new folder for my pictures and it won't let me do it. I have tried clicking on the 'New Folder" button at the top. I have tried the hot key ' ctrl shift N' and I have right clicked to see if there was an option for new folder and there isn't. I have rebooted my computer and nothing I try works. I have never had this problem before.Does anyone know what else I can try to fix this problem?

Thank you for any help,
Suzanne

suzantn, is this a recent problem?
Try a system restore
if that doesn't fix it try a repair install

There have been a spate of these problems recently

There have been a spate of these problems recently (strange ).

Have you looked at the recent threads on this topic?

Here are a couple of them:
Unable to create new folders in Windows Explorer or desktop
Lost ''new folder'' option

Remember to create a System Restore point, or better yet, a backup HDD image, before applying any Registry fixes.

Yes, I get the New Folder button at the top but it isn't working. I click on it and nothing happens. I tried a restore and my computer wouldn't restore. I am still looking for a solution and don't know what to do.

If your PC is working properly now, you should create:
  • A System Restore point
  • A backup HDD image
I recommend a backup HDD image.

I want to be able to access individual folders with a custom hotkey. The built-in windows shortcut feature doesn't work because the shortcut folder has to be placed on the desktop. I used a program called ActiveKeys, but it expired and the license is way too expensive for what it does.
