"New Text Document" button on Win-Explorer

Is it possible to create a "New Text Document" button on Windows Explorer ?

- there is already "New Folder" ... "New Text Document" would be very useful

If not, is it possible to create a hot-key (combo) to create a new text doc on Win-Explorer ?

Thank you :)
