Windows 7: Insert Word doc in Windows Explorer ?

Insert Word doc in Windows Explorer ?

I want to insert a Word document into a folder that holds mainly pictures in Windows Explorer. In XP I would right click / new / and several options were available to open. How do I do this in Win 7, when I right click all it shows is "Folder". I'm always open to change but I have used Win Explorer for my work flow for a very long time.

Hi jstchilln, Unless I'm missing the point I can't see the problem. The image attached was taken in Win Expl. and right click on Word Doc produces a bundle of options including the one indicated which allows you to copy into anywhere you wish including a Folder in 'Pictures'.
Hope this helps.

I could be wrong, but I think he's saying he wants to insert a new Word document into the folder by right clicking, new document, Word document.

I'm not sure how all the options other than New Folder disappeared, but these threads below should get you wherever you need to be:

'New Text Document' missing?
New Context Menu - Remove & Restore Default Menu Items
NEW Context Menu - Edit for Desktop
Edit Context Menu Items In Windows 7 & Vista
Restore missing NEW context menu item in Windows

This might be a dumb question, but do you have Microsoft Office installed? And, if you do, did it come with the computer with just a trial license? If so, and it expired, it would remove that New context menu item.

Thanks for the reply but this is a bunch of BS. You take an option that has been a standard for years and now I have to go into the registry and make changes for it to be available??? Who designed this part of Win 7. Steve Jobs.

I'm not sure why those options have disappeared, to be honest, but I don't think it's something inherent in Windows 7 that would take them away. Those options are originally there, so it's just a matter of trying to figure out why they disappeared. Those links I provided are just a means of mitigating the problem until we can find out what caused it.
