Skip

Hi Tony

Is it just My Documents?
What technique do you use to create a new folder?
Are you sure it is not being created further down the list?
Is it just Local or Public folders as well?
Have you tried re-starting your computer?
What have you changed on the system since it was last working correctly?
Have you tried System Restore?

The more details you can give (And what you have tried) will make it easier to narrow the problem down.

The right click>NEW> does not even show the option of creating a new folder ...

No ... I cannot create a new folder anywhere - My Docs, Desktop, within other folders, etc.

I tried the 'right click' in My Docs as shown above, and also clicked on 'NEW FOLDER' in the top pane of the My Docs page ...

I have thoroughly searched the My Docs folder - it's not there ...

Local and Public

Restarted AND tried System Restore to no avail ...

I can't think of anything I might have changed ...

When I click on the 'NEW FOLDER' in the top pane of the My Docs page, the words 'NEW FOLDER' blink but nothing happens ...

I even did a 'search' for NEW FOLDER and anything I came up with is very old ...

thank you

By the way, with W7, using System Restore for these things is akin to using a sledghammer to crack a walnut!

Also do you happen to have UAC turned off?

cass ... as I stated above, the right click doesn't even give me the OPTION of selecting NEW FOLDER ... it is NOT in the list of selectable items ...

What does turning off UAC do? ... I am signed on as the administrator ... doesn't that give me the rights to permit changes?
