Does shift control N still work for creating a new folder?

Dave,

ALT + 2 won't work on the Desktop, but it should work in File Explorer under Windows 10, including if you're viewing the Desktop folder in File Explorer itself.

Of course, as you've noted, CTRL + SHIFT + N works, too.  I tend to use that far more frequently than ALT + 2, but either is an "easy to handle" keyboard shortcut for me.  I imagine ALT + 2 might be easier than CTRL + SHIFT + N for certain users.

Also, to be perfectly clear, in the ALT + 2 command you must use the 2 on the number row, not in the number pad.  I realize most screen reader users will have the number pad in use for screen reader commands to begin with, but I have occasionally seen folks try certain "digit" shortcuts with the NumLock on and the digit on the number pad, and very often this will not work.  Sometimes it matters whether we're talking Num Row or Num Pad when it comes to the digit press.

Hi,


that ALT+2 shortcut does not work if the window is not maximised.

Try maximising the window before you issue it.

Oddly enough, Ctrl plus shift plus n it’s not working in the documents folder control shift-n is only working on the desktop.

I'm a counterpoint to this.  It works regardless of whether File Explorer is maximized for me or not.

Hi Dave,
 
After you open your Drive F, you need to be in a folder of the drive for the, Alt + 2 on the number row keystroke to work.

It should work in the root directory of the drive, too. I just tested it on my e drive right after opening it and it works there.

But seems this command is weirdly inconsistent. I’ve never had ctrl-shift-n fail to work, so I just use that..I don’t thinkt aht keystroke is going anywhere
