    The next file system mystery

    Every time I think I am on top of W7's file system it throws a new mystery at me !

    I have successfully transferred a bunch of documents into various folders into My Documents > Public Documents.

    When I want to make a new folder, that option is sometimes not available in the Context Menu:

    1. In either the LH pane or the RH pane when I open the files from Favorites
    2. In the RH pane when I open the files from the Library
    3. In the RH pane when I open the files in their physical location - C:\Users . . . etc

    I have read that the behaviour in the Favorites is "expected" although inconvenient and I suppose I will just have to live with that - or is there a workaround ?

    But I really would like to be able to create new folders from the context menu in the RH pane in op
    tions 2. and 3. above - is that possible ?

    Thanks for all the help I get here - what a great forum this is !

    When you right click in a blank area to the right in Documents - click on New then Folder - does that not work for you ?

    It does

    Why didn't I think of that ?
    Why did my 30 minutes of web search not find that ?
    Why is this forum so consistently helpful ?

    The change from WinXP's C:\Documents and Settings to C:\Users\LogOnName\ and its subFolders did confuse things a bit. What is seen in Libraries will be found in the Folders in C:\Users.

    You can also use that method in Windows Explorer to create a new Library.
