    Button in Windows Explorer

    I would like to find out if there is a way to add a button on the toolbar that by clicking it would Create a new folder in WE instead of going through FILE, NEW, FOLDER. Thank you

    Ya, that's fine, I just wondered if you knew about that shortcut though it's not in the explorer toolbar and if you have it in folder view on the left margin you have to toggle the folder button so it may not always be showing if you like folder view.

    Don't we already have the one-click-new-folder in Folder Explorer (Win7x64 for me)?

    Yes, but this was an XP question. I looked for it in the toolbar customization list (I always add the Refresh button) but it is not there, just in the shortcut tasks list as shown.

    I just use ALT+F then W then F. Saves me having to install anything to do the same job.
