    'New' option disappearing!

    When you right-click on the WindowsME desktop or inside a Windows Explorer box, you normally get 'New' as a sub-menu option on the popup menu - letting you crete a new folder, text document, word document etc. A couple of times I've noticed this isn't there on my system. Normally it is but twice now I've come to create a folder and been unable to, having to resort to doing it through a dos window! If the WindowsME menu bar at the top of an explorer box is meant to ahve a File->New option, that too is missing.

    What could be causing this option to periodically be removed (not disabled, it just doesn't exist) and how might I fix it?

    could you be affected by some group policies? is this a home or work computer?

    i'm still a newb to server environments, but i would think that option could be disabled on certain folders using group policy. someone more knowledgeable can elaborate on it if this is on a work computer.

    No it's just my home PC. Not on a network and never has been - no policies set up at all. I've recently added a second graphics card+monitor and got the latest nVidia drivers which added extra options for multiple desktops etc. That's the only thing that's changed in months.
