Can I make "F1" as the Create New Folder shortcut key in Windows 7?

Also can I customize Windows key shortcuts?

Hm. I don't think there's a way to do that without installing third party utilities. You can create customized keyboard shortcuts to open a shortcut to a folder or application ... Right click on a shortcut, click properties, and put in the shortcut you want. F keys work, or pressing a letter or number key will put in "ctrl + alt + *"

You can assign a shortcut to respond to just "F1" (no ctrl, alt, shift, etc.). – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Jul 29 '11 at 20:38
Mmm, you're right my bad. I'll edit. – Daniel B. Jul 29 '11 at 21:28

Yup, try AutoHotKey for that.
