Hello,

I'm sorry if I offended anyone while asking my 1st question that was definitely unintentional. This is the 1st time i've used a "q&a" site and I was trying not to be lengthy.

Any help received is greatly appreciated.

i am unable to create any folders. i can create brief cases but no folders, when i right click my mouse a folder is not even an option . I even when i go into my library and click on new folder nothing happens..i think it's a windows issue but i've been all over there support site and not getting the answer i need. yes i've tried system restore rebooting and a few other things but as my last resort if i have to restore to factory settings will this give me this function again ..ps and there are no error messages appearing.

Thanking you in advance for any assistance
