I am very capable of going into my command prompt and typing in mkdir FolderName but this is very annoying when I am creating folders on the fly. Right now when I right click on the desktop (or in any folder) and go to the new option there is no folder option in the menu. Also when I am in a folder and click the New folder button, absolutely nothing happens. Like I said I am using Windows 7 and would like to know how I can go about troubleshooting this problem and eventually fixing it. Thank you!

StackOverflow is for programming and programmers tools related questions, not general operating system or computer support. For that, you should post your question to Super User. Voting to close as off topic. Good luck. :-) – Ken White Jun 1 '13 at 4:53
