    Cannot add a new folder

    Hi

    I cannot add a new folder either from desktop or within folders - Click on
    'New' but 'Folder' option missing from list. I have got around this by
    creating a empty folder which I copy and rename, but still would like
    solution.

    Thanks in advance for help
