"New" in the dialogbox is empty. Not possible to make a new folder f.x

Hi

When rightclicking in a folder from my computer and choosing "new", it stands empty. This is for the folders in the computer

But when I plug in my android, and rightclicking in a folder from the android, "new folder" is a possibility

How to fix this for the folders in my computer, i.e to get a possibility to make new folders and more?

The images have Norwegian language; folder=mappe, tom=empty, ny=new

My computer:

"New" in the dialogbox is empty. Not possible to make a new folder f.x-datamaskin.jpg

My Android:

"New" in the dialogbox is empty. Not possible to make a new folder f.x-android.jpg


Thanks



The computer has 32 bit win 7 home premium

Hello kjell,

What's in the "New" context menu will vary per location that you open it. Usually in system locations, you will only have the New -> Folder option available.

If you right click on your desktop and click on "New", is it still empty?

Windows 7 x64 Pro, "empty folder" bug?
I've noticed that sometimes Windows Explorer reports some folders as being empty, even though they aren't. Reentering that folder would reveal the files eventually. Has anyone noticed this bug? I'm already wondering how many folders did I accidentally delete because of this bug.
