The usual way of creating a new folder in previous Windows operating systems was to right-click on a blank space in the window or computer desktop and select the new folder option. There was no keyboard shortcut available that could be quickly pressed to create that new folder.
This has apparently changed in Windows 7 as it is now possible to create new folders with the keyboard shortcut [CTRL Shift N]. All you need to do is press this keyboard shortcut whenever you want to create a new folder. The only thing left to do is to type in the name of the folder if you want to change it and hit enter to save the changes.
