Do you still angry about the way to create a new folder with Windows 95 or Windows NT 4.0 Explorer? MDFolder is the solution. By clicking the right mousebutton at the desired folder and choosing New Folder you getting an new folder with a name of your choice!

Installation and Use

Just start the installation with doubleclick on the setup icon

MDFolder has been tested on Windows 95, 98 and NT 4.0.


This is a screenshot of MDFolder. This windows will open when you choose New Folder in the menu by clicking the right mouse button.

How it works

In Context Menu from the Explorer there is something new: New Folder. Click it and you will get a dialog. Write down the name of the new folder and enter OK. Now you have a new folder with this name at the current directory or drive!



Windows 98/95 doesn't refresh the view of its files/folders as often as we'd like it to. To make it refresh them constantly, run Regedit and go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Update In the right hand pane, right-click on the UpdateMode value (or Update on some machines) and select Modify. Highlight 01 (or 1 in some cases) and change its Decimal value to 0. It will actually show as 0x00000000 (0), because this is a DWORD (double-word) value. Exit the Registry Editor and restart Windows when done.

CAUTION: This constant refresh setting might impair your computer's performance if your CPU's clock speed is 200 MHz or lower, and you are using Windows 98 or have installed Microsoft Internet Explorer 4/5 on your Windows 95/OSR2 machine!

Many thanks to Richard Vopelak for this hint.
