View Full Version : Can't create new folder! Help!

I have windows ME and for quite sometime I have not been able to create a new folder. I used to go to file then to new folder. Now when I go to file and then look for new folder it's not there. Any body have any suggestions on how to fix this? I heard that there might be a problem in my registry but I have know idea on how to fix that nor do I know how to backup my registry even if I did try and fix it.
If it is a problem with registry would it be wise to buy Registry Mechanic?

Thanks in advance folks,

I think what would be wise is to get rid of ME. It was probably the WORST OS every created.

Can you right-click and create a new folder?

I have discovered a fix.

Download this patch at...WWW://

Download the patch, unzip, and double click the registry file inside, and it'll be patched.

It worked for me now I can create all the folders I want and life is good again.;a
