Look at the left side of the Explorer Window for an area marked "File and Folder Tasks."
Click on the link that says "Make a new folder."

3
Click on "File" on the menu bar to begin creating a new folder in a different way.
Select the "New" menu item and click on the "Folder" submenu item.

4
Move the mouse cursor to a blank area of the folder area and right click to bring up the context menu to begin creating a new folder in a third way.
Select "New" and click on the "Folder" submenu item.

5
Utilize a fourth method to create a folder directly on the desktop.
Right click on a blank area of the desktop.
Select "New" and click on the "Folder" submenu item.

6
Type a name for the new folder in the highlighted area after using any of the methods described in Steps 2 through 4.
Press the "Enter" key or click in a blank area of the folder window to complete the process.
also you might just open your drive right click inside select new folder and name it.

Restore Folder Options in Windows XP
Windows XP has several viewing options that you can modify for folders in Windows Explorer. These include being able to customize whether you activate items by clicking them once or twice, whether Windows displays hidden and protected files and several other options.
If you have played with these options in an attempt to determine how you prefer to use your computer, you may accidentally reach the point where you have changed so many items that you are unsure of how to revert to the original configuration.
For this reason, Windows XP allows you to restore the folder options to their defaults by clicking a button.
Open Windows Explorer.
Two of the fastest ways to do this are by clicking the "Start" button and then clicking "My Computer" and by double clicking the "My Computer" icon on the desktop.
Click the "Tools" drop-down menu and select "Folder Options."

Click the "General" tab, and then click the "Restore Defaults" button if you would like to restore the default settings for the "Common Tasks" bar on the left side of folders, whether new folders open in the same window or a new window and whether items open with a single click or double click.
Click the "View" tab, and then click the "Restore Defaults" button if you would like to restore any advanced view settings to their defaults, such as whether Windows displays hidden and protected files.
Click the "Reset All Folders" button if you would like to restore the default viewing option to all folders, such as the detailed view or list view.
Click "OK" to save your changes.
