This question already has an answer here:

I'm not able to create new folders in my laptop. Even when I right click on my mouse it's not showing me the new folder option. Is this any spam or not?

I tried the following registry fix:

but it says that NewFolderFix.reg, didn't work:

Not all data was succesfully written to the registry. Some keys are open by the system or other processes.

I can't vouch for the registry file, but if you're willing to trust it you can either import it in safe mode or open that file in notepad and manually edit those keys using regedit, then restart.
