    Missing "New" from context/right click menu


    Click image for larger version

    Basically the "New" option is missing from the context menu along with many other options that should be there.
    It also seems like the functionalities like "New Folder" simply don't work anymore when I use other methods of making folders.

    Edit: Found a solution here New Context Menu Item - Restore or Remove

    I'm still missing a few options other than "New" however this is what I wanted to fix specifically and will be marking this as solved.
