You create it with any text editor – just click Save and enter "Folder.htt" as the name – and no, it won't have any effect in Windows 7. The support for customized folders has been disabled in Windows XP SP1 (can be re-enabled) and completely removed in Windows Vista.

You can obtain the default Folder.htt from %WINDIR%\Web in older Windows versions; see also this KB for some basic documentation.

If you require a folder that starts with a period (.) then you must do this on the command line. Explorer will not allow you to create or rename a folder to something which starts with a period.

To create your folder, start a command line prompt and enter:

mkdir .htt
