Hi,
I am mising the icon "Make New Folder" in Vista's Explorer.
I know there are other possibilities creating a new folder (e.g. Organize, Make New Folder button).

I would appreciate if someone knows a trick how to add the icon "make new folder" to the Explorer.

Thank you!

Brink,

I don't mean right click --> New --> Folder. I am msiing a button or an icon where a new folder will be created when you click on this icon respectively button.

Regards,

Hi BeWo, and welcome to Vista Forums.

If you mean when you right click and click on New that there is no Folder option, then this tutorial will show you how to restore it.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

BeWo,

Vista does not have a New Folder button or icon on the Windows Explorer toolbar. The right click --> New --> Folder is the only other option available to create a new folder in a Windows Explorer window that I know of.

Sorry, :(
Shawn

I know :-( , but that's the reason why I posted this question. Ther are many tricks available for many problems, so I thought may be there is a trick (a registry hack e.g.) that helps.
Best regards,

BeWo

Hi - I have the same question...

When I click "save as" from many applications (like Windows Mail, Word, etc.), I get an Explorer-like dialog box that includes a icon on the top toolbar for creating a new file in a directory. I would very much like to have a similar icon on the toolbar of the version of Explorer that is obtained by right-clicking the Start button. Seems a simple enough thing. Current icons are:
Organize -- Views -- Burn.
