    I suspect they meant for it to be that way... if you right-click in the
    right-hand pane, you can choose new files.

    No bug that is, Jared. That behavior is by design. Under the new UAC
    security scheme the user, by default, only has permissions to create and
    place files within their own user profile (environment). You can later move
    them to the root, but it is not recommended.

    As to the other issue, you may want to check for an updated display driver,
    though I tend to think we will see a number of display issues for a time.
