Unable to create new folder in Windows 7

Unable to create new folder in Windows 7
Views: 477

I am unable to create a new folder by any means in Windows 7. From within Windows Explorer if I select the "New Folder" option, nothing happens. Also, from the Desktop, the "Folder" option does not show when right-clicking and selecting "New".

I have done a system restore back beyond where I knew it was working and am still not able to create a new folder.

Can not create a new folder in windows explorer

To my knowledge I have added no software to my stand alone Desktop machine. I have 2 users on this machine user X and user Y.

I can create a directory/folder through the command processor. When I click the create folder button nothing happens. When I do a right click on the create folder button nothing happens.

I have 2 questions: what did I do to kill the create folder feature and how do I correct the problem?

I am very freightened about messing with the Registry because I am ignorant about what it does.

Cannot create new folder?

It used to work? I do it all the time but the last time I tried to create a new folder it wouldn't work. Anywhere in any of my libraries, in my C drive, no where. I tried right clicking, I tried moving it to another folder and then hitting make new folder and I get a message that say I cannot create a new folder here pick a different destination.

I tried to restore to an earlier time and that didn't work either? I don't undderstand why it won't let me make a new folder?

New folder choice is NOT available anymore when Right Click

Suddenly, and w/o any warning, I cannot create a simple 'New Folder'; a 'right-click' attempt offers me only: 1.) a Compressed (zip) folder, or, 2.) a Briefcase. Why did the simple 'New Folder' disappear off of the menu list, and HOW can I get it BACK?

If I open Explorer and try to create a New Folder from there, I can "click on the 'New Folder' button ALL DAY, but it does NOTHING".

What's going on here ?

I am running Windows 7, and have been doing so for 15-16 months, w/o any real problems, until now.

"New Folder" problem; Unable to create from clicking this on toolbar

For reasons unknown, when I click "New Folder" on the toolbar (via WIndows Explorer or any window where this appears on the Toolbar/Command bar) nothing happens. I'm unable to create a new folder in the window that's open. Doesn't matter where I try this, it's not working.

I'm logged in with my regular User profile, which has Admin privileges. (It isn't that the "New Folder" words don't appear on the toolbar . it's just that it doesn't work to create a new folder in the window.) I can see other files in the folder, as well as other previous folders, but I can't create any new folders where I'd like them. I've looked in the Folder Options, and everything looks fine.

Customizing folder properties to change its icon

I am trying to create an Icon for windows 7 that I can put in all my music folders that can incorperate whatever folder.jpg is in that specific folder. (I.e. a CD Case with whatever Folder.jpg is in said folder) I know there has to be a way to do this because the default icons have that feature (I.e.

A folder with Folder.jpg sticking out of it) I use IcoFX to create icons and can't seem to find a feature that would provide the desired effect, also once made, how do I change the default folder icon to use said icon?

Lastly would like to create the effect that once I move my cursor over it the CD case opens. just a simple second image that I've seen icons do Just not sure what program to use to create this icon effect

I Have started creating individual icons with each album art on it but its a long tedious process and just would like to know how to create one universal icon that puts the correct pic on it automatically.

Reset folder's icon on Windows 7 to default

I have some files being downloaded. When I came home, I tried to create folder on my desktop. When I created the folder, the default icon was "unknown". When I right click on the folder, and went to the "change icon" tab, the icon was the default icon for folder.

Then I click on "change icon" and I selected again the default folder icon.

But every time I create folder it is by default an unknown file. The funny thing is that if I create a folder inside other folder,

I can't create a new folder anymore

First off, I am the administrator and have my settings on full control. I am running Windows 7 Pro x64.

Ok so I don't know what disabled me from creating new folders, but there has to be a way to change it back. Whenever I right click, instead of there being the "folder" option under the "new" tab, it just shows "shortcut" in place of where the folder would be.

I also opened up the "Documents" folder and tried creating a new folder by clicking on the "New Folder" tab inside the "Documents" folder.

Neither of those options worked. I don't know if something got disabled or deleted, but I can't create new folders at all.

I can still download and install whatever I want. It's just that I can't create a new folder at all.
