1. Navigate to the location where you want to create the folder.

2. Right-click on a blank space in the folder location. Take care with this: If you right-click on an existing item in the folder, you’ll get the wrong menu.

3. Select New then Folder from the contextual menu. Windows will create the new folder at your current location.

4. Enter your desired folder name to replace “New folder” and hit Enter.

You can create folders on the Desktop using this method too. Right-click on a blank space on the Desktop, then go to New > Folder.

A few notes about shortcut keys

Have azlook at a few more shortcut key notes:

  • Whenever a shortcut key is listed with a plus sign (+) in the string, such as Ctrl + S, this means that the Ctrl key is held while the letter S is pressed.
  • Whenever it’s listed with commas separating the string, such as Alt + F, W, F, note that while the Alt key is held, you press the letter F. Both keys are afterwards released while the W and F keys are pressed one after another.
  • Either upper or lower case letters in these shortcut key combinations can work. Uppercase letters are often used as examples for clarity.

If you don’t want to use keyboard shortcuts on your computer anymore, you can turn off hotkeys or disable all the keyboard shortcuts on your PC through the Windows Registry.
