yes I downloaded tweakui and clicking the "new" tab brings a list of the programs that should be accessed by the right click or the "file" menu.
however, If I right click the desktop or go to file in an open existing folder the "new" option is not there.
also when I am downloading and get the option to save to my documents and click on the new folder icon, nothing happens.
I dont know what file or reg entry governs the "new" option but it was working on friday and not on sunday and all I have done is install a game. uninstalling has made no difference and I wouldnt have thought a game installation would have affected this option.
Its driving me mad coz there must be some setting that has changed but I dont know the file that gives the options on the toolbar, or is it just something in a program that I'll never find ...
this is last bump before closing and reformatting coz I cant organise anything without opening a new folder and at the moment I'm reduced to copying an existing folder, renaming it and then deleting the contents to form a new empty folder.
