    I created a regfile that modified the context menu so that I could just make one click to create a folder. It worked very well in XP but now that I have changed to Windows 7 it doesn't work. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Here is the contents of the reg file.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\CmdHere]
    @="Create Pics"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\CmdHere\Command]
    @="C:\\Windows\\System32\\cmd.exe /c md Pics \"%1\""

    Only takes 2 clicks now.. right click anywhere and then one click creates a new folder. Do you really need so many folders that two clicks are slowing you down?

    Most XP registry tweaks do not work in Windows 7.

    I see you created your own as I have never seen that tweak before.

    The only thing I can suggest is open the reg file in Notepad and save the file in ANSI format/

    There always has to be at least one smartass who doesn't know the answer to your problem so he or she has to belittle the person who is asking the question. For your info, SA, I do use that many folders and it did speed up what I was doing. I suggest from now on if you don't know the answer to someones problem, just keep your comments to yourself. You probably know less about computers than most of the people who are asking the questions. By the way, KMA.
