    New Folder


    How in the heck do you create a new folder in Windows 8??? I can do it within a DOS prompt. . Will I need to go back an re-learn DOS?

    Hello Frank,

    In Windows Explorer or on the desktop, you should be able to right click on a empty space, then click on New and Folder to create one.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    It works, Brink. Thanks, I can now put away my DOS 6.22 manual.

    I've noticed over the years that a lot of people dont use the right click on the mouse button, you can do a lot of things with that right click. Now that we've got Windows 8, it becomes even more important. I've always used it, maybe thats why Windows 8 wasnt that hard to crack for me, but was for others.

    The screen, left hand corner, right click has certainly improved my use of Windows 8!
