Hotkey for creating a new folder in windows 7 explorer

 

This blog post is entirely trivial, but I just discovered it!

As a keyboard centric guy I like to drive most of windows through the keyboard.   One thing that’s always annoyed me in explorer is the difficulty of making a new folder.   It used to be   ALT-F  W F   ( and if you have tortisesvn is installed sometimes craziness will happen on certain folders).    Basically just driving the folder creating by the menu keyboard shortcuts.    Of course the “New” menu takes a while to populate as it works out all the “new” things you can create.

Anyways, to the point….

To make a new folder in explorer under Windows 7 -   CNTRL-SHIFT-N
