    In "Windows Explorer" it used to be that if you right clicked a folder you would get a drop down menu that would include many options including "NEW". That would let you make a subfolder for the folder that you clicked.
    Recently, when you right click a folder the menu does not include "NEW" anymore. Is there any way to remedy that?

    Seems to be a glitch. I get "New" as I've always got. One thing is, you may need to have the root folder opened, before you create a "New". It's not automatic, to create new anywhere anyhow. A quite nice add is TeraCopy, http://codesector.com/teracopy
