right click.. new folder

I have been doing a few customisations but I am not sure if I accidentally removed this or its not standard

I need the menu item on the desktop when you right click your mouse and you get new >> folder, file etc

would anyone know how to either get this back or a hack to use it ?

thank you

It's still the standard, so you must have broken it with some registry hack.

No idea what key it is though.

Hello Saltedm8, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Step 5 in this tutorial below may be able to restore the New Folder context menu item for you.

Hope this helps,
