Most of us need to create new folders in Windows, to better organize our files in File Explorer. Windows 10/8/7 includes the ability to add new folders with a keyboard shortcut key combination.
Hotkey for creating a new folder
To create a new folder, we normally right-click, select New > Folder. But Windows 10/8/7 lets you do it with a keyboard shortcut too.
To set a Hotkey for creating a new folder, simply press Ctrl+Shift+N in an open Explorer window & the folder will be automatically created instantly show up, ready to be renamed to something more useful.
For example, click on the desktop and then press Ctrl+Shift+N. You will see that a New folder is created instantaneously all ready to be re-named.
You can open in this fashion in any Windows File Explorer window.
