This question already has an answer here:

Is there any way to set a shortcut (e.g. ctrl+alt+n) for creating a new folder in windows 7?

This is obviously instead of right clicking and pressing create new folder.

This shortcut is already in Windows 7.

You need to press:

Ctrl + ⇧ Shift + N

This creates a new folder named New Folder and that name is highlighted so you can edit the name as soon as you press the shortcut, just like you would when using the context menu
