Yep, it certainly does. I guess only weirdos like me (and maybe you too) who like to have a command window open just in case most of the time would use this method, though.

Or you can type a PowerShell command to do the same thing. I’m reasonably sure that mkdir works in PowerShell.

With Windows, there is almost never just one way to do things.

Dean gave three ways, and Sieghard had given yet another. Alt2 also works.

So Take your pick. The Applications key is the longest way to accomplish this.

You can use the application key that way, or you can press shift+ctrl+n, or you can add New Folder to the Quick Access Tool Bar.

Hi Shirley,


To make a folder in Windows 10, you have to use the applications key.


First, enter the folder you want to place your new folder in, and press the applications key or shift+f10. Once the menu opens arrow down several times until you reach the new sub menu. pres right arrow, and scroll to new folder and press enter. You can then type the name you want and press enter.


I hope that makes sense.

Hi Listers,


Now that I have Windows 10 and JAWS 2020, I can’t figure out how to create a new folder. It used to be really easy, but I can’t do it the way I used to. Please help.


Thanks for any help.
