Lost my "Create a new file folder" function

When I right click on my desktop, then drop down menu, click "New" I no longer have a choice of New Folder,
only breifcase, which doesn't serve my purposes. How can I recover my create new file folder function?

Restored my Create a folder function

Thanks Brink, for that info. You solved my problem and as Step 16 suggested it did take a moment for the folder function to appear. Almost thought it wasn't going to work. Where did you find the fixit information, because I looked in all the Help places to no avail. Thanks again.

You're most welcome Rich.

It's from plenty of digging in Windows and the registry.
