    Help!

    I've lost the "New Folder" option when right clicking on the desktop (or in
    a sub folder)
    - the drop down menu appears, but "New Folder" is missing.

    Any help is appreciated!

    Start the Registry Editor
    Go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \ Directory \ Background \ shellex \
    ContextMenuHandlers \ New \
    The value for (Default) in the right-hand pane should be:

    {D969A300-E7FF-11d0-A93B-00A0C90F2719}
