When i click on new folder option it does nothing


Which operating system ?
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.

Icon background in Windows XP 2


It looks like a custom view for a music folder. Try right-clicking on the folder in Windows Explorer, then select the 3rd tab, "Customize", and change your folder type.

Icon change


It sounds as if you might be altering the file type extension.

A file name is made up of 2 parts - The actual name (the bit before the . ) and the file type extension (the 3 or 4 letters after the . )

By default, the file type extensions are normally hidden (as this prevents problems), but it is possible to get XP to show them by the following method:

Open 'My Documents' folder. Click Tools>Folder Options>View. Scroll down the lsit and uncheck 'hide extensions for known file types' Click Ok.

If you have got the file extensions showing and you were to change or delete one the icon will change. The file type extension basically tells the computer what type of file it is, and which program should open it (and shows the appropriate programs icon.)

Ensure your files have the correct extension and the reverse the above steps to 'hide' them.

Hope this helps.

New screens at Max. size


Hello there.

In Windows sometimes it 'forgets' its window placement but luckily we can set it back to maximised windows by default.

To do this please do the following.

* Double-click "My Computer"
* Maximise window by clicking the icon on the top right.
* Left click "Tools" menu.
* Left click "Folder Options"
* Left click "View" tab.
* Left click "Apply to All Folders" in the "folder view" section
* Finally left click "OK"

This will save your window placement to be maximised by default, for any new windows opened.

Hope this helps.
