New Folder

I have been a Google, Youtube and searching forums freak the past few days and getting no where. I cannot create a New Folder. When I open a current folder the option to create a New Folder is there. When I click on New Folder nothing happens. I can copy and paste a folder with content but none of this makes sense. I am using Windows 7 Home Edition. If anyone knows how to fix this issue I would appreciate it. Please do not respond if you do not know how to resolve this problem. Thank you.

Hello Sclaypoole, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could download and merge the .reg files for the listed folder and directory options in the tutorial below to fix this. It will restore the default associations and registry entries for these file types.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

Hope this helps,
Shawn
