Simple Program Application Question Re; A Specific Folder ???

Question: Simple Program Application Question Re; A Specific Folder ???



I am writing this because I am seeking help with an Email related issue.

I am trying to use a program that retrieves Inbound Email attachments and resends them to a new destination… it is a dispatch program.

The Help Files associated with this program make reference to “The Attachment Folder” from “My Email Program”.

I am currently using Microsoft Outlook 2000 as my Email program although… I also have Outlook Express as an optional email program that I could use.

I would prefer to stay with Outlook 2000 though…
“if possible”.

I am enclosing an excerpt from the “Help” File associated with this program so you can see their exact reference to an “Attachment Folder from my Email Program”.

I have tried contacting The Program Manufacturers Tech. Support but as yet have not heard back from them.

I am looking for any advice or direction to be able to Locate and Identify this “Attachments Folder” in “my Email Program” that they make reference to.

If you can assist or advise me in any way I would appreciate it very much, as I am completely lost as to what to do next.

My Operating System is Windows 98SE.

Thank You
Mike Santos

Excerpt from The Program Distributor… “as Follows”

If you want to automatically scan for information sent by email, add the attachments folder of your email software to the list of folders to scan.

The Program is “Express Delegate” and it is available as a Free Download from NCH Swift Sound… Here is The Link for further examination… if so desired.

Entire Help File Entry “as Follows”

Receive by Scanning Network Folders

Express Delegate can scan a number of network folders for incoming files. Once it finds a file, it moves the file into its internal folder and then sends it to the pre-set Destination.

Usually you should have at least one folder setup. Your network administrator should setup this shared folder on the server (eg. \\Server\General) and all desired incoming set to send to that folder.

If you want to automatically scan for information sent by email, add the attachments folder of your email software to the list of folders to scan.

Again… any Advice or direction you can offer will be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

Preferred Solution: Simple Program Application Question Re; A Specific Folder ???

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Simple Program Application Question Re; A Specific Folder ???

Outlook does not save the attachments in a "separate folder", it bundles them up with everything else in a .pst file.

Other email programs such as Eudora use an attachments folde, located wherever you want it. Looks like thats what the program is designed for?

Answer:can i block a program to write access to a specific folder ?

This may sound stupid, but what happens if you just delete that \Video\ folder? Does it get recerated? If not, that may be the easy fix. If not, you can try changing permissions for that one folder.

Hi All,

Though I am a newbie to the forums - I'm no newbie to windows or tinkering with it. I have a specific quesion regarding the way Vista displays items in a folder and folder settings. Is there a way to have vista to always display items in a folder grouped by file type as opposed to viewing by name EVEN if the folder is brand new OR if you've never viewed inside of the folder (i.e. just created and placed items in it)?

For example - I want the following to be my default for every time a folder is created (and subsequently viewed)

Columns shown (in this order)
Name, size, Date Modified, Type, Tags

Grouped by type

Shown in Detail View

I also want for the window size to default to a size that I set based upon an existing window (I like for my windows to be wide and not the narrow/small default size that vista gives). And i want for the column sizes to be the default for what I customize.

Is there a regisitry change I have to make in order for these settings to be the default and not something that I have to customize for each and every folder and window (trust me this gets annoying after the 3rd window).

I've read through some of the Folder View tutorials in this forum and didn't see anything that would resolve my issue. I didn't have this issue in Windows XP. Once I customized a folder and window the way I wanted it to - once I 'told' windows to apply to all folders - it did just that. Any tips would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Answer:Specific Folder Setting question

Hello roa78 and welcome to the forums.

I am sure that there is a way to set this (might only be in the registry though...). I just don't know what it is off the top of my head. I will have to look it up later. I might suggest looking on the internet, as sometimes you can find stuff.

Quick, fast and easy "yes or no" question. I'm afraid to mess up my Vista because it seems slightly delicate so I feel the need to be sure when deleting certain things.

I have three folders in the Windows Vista Users folder but I only use one account, my account and Windows Vista never asks me to choose an account so I'm assuming those folders a basically useless considering they have no data in them and I don't use them. They're probably there from when I made this account to change the name of the account, can I safely erase them without fearing any mishaps?

Thank you for your time and patience, muchly appreciated.

Oh, and also, another quick question I don't think deserved another thread, what's Groove? When I right-click on folders it gives me the option of synchronizing with a "Groove" folder.

Hi, everyone. This should be pretty easy but I'm new to windows 7.
I have a desktop PC running Windows 7 Pro/32. I also have a laptop running XP Home. I have a couple of folders on the desktop PC that I would like to share with my laptop. However, I do not want to share these folders with any other user on the desktop PC. I want to keep them off limits to all users except the logged on standard user, (and, of course, the administrator) and the laptop.
Basically, I want these two folders to be available to everyone except the guest account on Windows 7. I can't figure it out with permissions. I'm able to get the folders shared but then guest account has access to them.

A couple of more details:
The desktop PC has 1 standard user account that I run from all the time and 1 administrator account that I keep logged off. The remaining guest account is turned on, when needed. The laptop has only one user account, the default administrator account.
The laptop shares an internet connection with the desktop PC through a linksys router.
Any help would be great.

Hi everyone!

I was wondering why my old laptop is almost full when I have very few items in her. I went on a mission of looking into almost every folder that I found. I made the hidden folders visible. I found that the location c:\users\myname\appdata\local\temp conatins about 800 folders and just as many other loose files among which I saw some videos, pictures, malware removal tools, *.exe files and just unidentified files like 6883.tmp. My simple question is I should be able to empty this folder without harming my system right? I mean some of the contents that I could identify in this folder are files that I already have in their respective folder like pictures but many others i do not know what they are.

What do y'all think?

Happy holydays!!

Answer:Just a simple question about a "Temp" folder

Yes, you can empty the contents of your temp folder after a reboot (newly installed software sometimes places files in the temp folder that will complete the installation on reboot).

Answer:Java Program Question(Simple)

Always the culprit, Integer division.

Remember that when you give the division operator (/) two integers, it returns another integer.

1/3 = 0
1.0/3.0 = .3333333333333 (ish)
1f/3f = .33333333333333 (ish)
1/3.0 = .33333333333 (ish)

Please, note the "ish" above, by that I mean there is no binary representation for 1/3 so the value will be the floating point whose value is as close to it as possible, this may be different, so you should never compare floating point numbers to each other, or doubles. Instead subtract one from the other and make sure the difference is less than some margin of error.

Hello all!
So I work tech support at my company and recently had one of our secretaries run into a virus. It was an email containing a fake resume in .doc format that once opened, attempted to direct the computer to download a trojan. AVG detected it right off the bat and quarantined it. I then ran a full system scan with AVG, Malwarebytes, and Spybot and everything came back clean.  I had assumed AVG along with Word being macro-disabled by default kept anything from actually happening.
However, at the time of the download she was running our company bookkeeping software (eClub for those interested) and it crashed once she tried to use it again. I check it out and see that the .exe to run eClub had been removed from the eClub folder (let's call it eclub.exe). Weird! So I go ahead and completely uninstall the program and reinstall, only to find eclub.exe was not reinstalled with it. I copy eclub.exe from another computer and try to paste it into the folder, and I'm told I don't have permission to do so. Then things get weird:
1. I uninstalled eClub completely again, removed the eClub folder and every possible saved setting for it.
2. I created a blank eClub folder (ex. C:\Program Files\eClub)
3. I can put anything I want into this folder, including .exes, EXCEPT for eclub.exe, getting the insufficient permission error.

I have been running 32 bit XP Pro SP3 for quite some time and decided to purchase an SSD and Win 7 Pro 64bit. I unhooked all my drives except for the SSD and installed Win7 (So I can choose which OS in BIOS during boot). I have the XP install on a seperate drive and I have another extra hard drive (Call it G: for reference below) that my STEAM games were installed under 32bit XP Pro.

My question is this:

Can I create another folder under under G:\Program Files like (Program FIles\STEAM 64bit\) to install STEAM so that my 32 bit STEAM folder will still be there if I boot up XP for some reason and still want to run STEAM from within XP? I realize this is probably a stooooopid question and I apologize in advance for my ignorance.

I know the 64bit 7 creates the x86 and 64bit Program Files on the C: drive, so I was wondering if this might work on other physical drives like my G: drive.

Thanks for any help!

Answer:Program Files Folder Install Question

Isn't steam still 32bit?

What you could do is leave the steam file where it is, then install steam on the new drive (for windows 7) but then use a symbolic link to direct the "steamapps" folder of this new installation to the old steam folder. That way both copies of steam will place game data in this location and read from it, but either version will have their own program to launch from.

MS Intellipoint is programmed to abort the Key Assignment popup menu (in Program-specific settings) when an "Esc" keystroke is received from the keyboard. But "Esc" is what I want to record into its Key Assignment cell, and assign that to a particular mouse button. Every time I hit the keyboard Esc button when in that cell, the menu immediately closes without recording anything.

Esc is not part of Intellipoint's list of present commands you can select with a simple mouse click, so there's no alternative but to go to the Key... Keystroke Assignment popup menu to try to get it programmed in. I've tried entering the Ascii-equivalent Alt-027 from the numpad and Ctrl-[ alternatives in that cell, with no luck.

Anyone know of a prefix or alternative code that can be used to get the Esc signal recorded in the Key Assignment menu? Many thanks.

I have been trying to diagnose a particular problem where applications freeze for a split 2-3 seconds at random intervals. I really hope that someone might be able to provide some suggestions as I am starting to pull my hair out with this.

For example, I could be running the following programs:
Google Chrome
VLC Movie Player
Playng TERA Online.

While playing Tera (current active program) and watching a movie on VLC. VLC will freeze for a few seconds (at random) and then continue, while the game I'm playing does not freeze at all.

Another scenario:
Mozilla Firefox
Quicktime Player
MS Office - Excel
While reading a webpage in Firefox (current active program) and listening to music with quicktime, as I scroll through the webpage the browser will freeze and become unresponsive for 2-3 seconds. Meanwhile the music playing in Quicktime has not missed a single beat.

List of attempted fixes:Checked Event Viewer(Applications) for errors, none found.

I have a command line utility for some purpose. I start this utility from a COM DLL using ShellExecuteEx function. When calling ShellExecuteEx, i specify the lpVerb parameter as "runas" so that the utility is started elevated. I call
the COM Interface function from an exe client on its startup. So when i start the client exe, the utility is also started. My problem is that since the utility is started elevated, it always asks for the UAC confirmation prompt. I can't stand this because
there will be no manual intervention during this process. So I need the utility to be started without showing the UAC prompt, but still elevated when i start the client exe. Is there any way to achieve this? I would prefer some changes done within the utility
itself like changing the manifest file rather than some system settings changes. Any help will be appreciated..

I'm new to the board here so I'm not positive what the typical format is for posting questions but I'm getting the following message which causes the computer to reboot. The error pops up approximately 2 hours after the computer has been logged in.

Services.exe Application Error
The instruction at "0x606d334c" referenced memory at "0x02d40328". The memory could not be "read".

Clicking either OK or Cancel causes the computer to reboot. You can move the window to the side and ignore it but that doesn't fix the issue.

Welcome darkman088 to the forum.
Try this.

Start Orb and type in magnifier. You will get Windows built in magnifier.

I use it a lot. I use a selected button on my mouse to activate it when needed.
You can adjust the magnification from 100% to over 1000% but not much else.

It magnifies the whole page.

In Win XP, is there a way to force an application to use a specific connection while everything else uses a different connection? Here’s what I’d like to be able to do:

I connect from home to work via Verizon Broadband and Nortel VPN to access a secure LAN with shared drives and services, including intranet applications. This is already in place and working fine. The work LAN firewall is configured to block all Internet browsing attempts for all devices connected via VPN – not necessarily for security reasons, but rather to conserve bandwidth. The VPN switch and firewall share the same router and broadband connection, so incoming Internet requests from home through the VPN would go back out of the firewall – effectively doubling the required bandwidth for each request.

This configuration renders embedded Internet links in email and various documents almost useless. There are two choices at present to affect a workaround.

One is to drop the VPN connection when Internet browsing is required; browse to the Internet; and then reestablish the VPN connection after the Internet browsing is complete. This is cumbersome and inefficient at best, but it does work.

The second is to configure the VPN client to use split tunneling. This works too, but puts additional load on the Verizon Broadband connection between home and office (already the slowest link in the path). Also, this option meets with resistance from our network folks for reasons I won’t go into here.

What I’d li... Read more

Answer:Can I force an application to use a specific network in XP?

The whole point of the VPN is to insure a secure channel into the remote computer. You drill a hole a truck could drive through if you actually allow Internet connections while the VPN is connected!

The ability to have multiple connections is normally configured by the VPN host, and I suspect your company would take a really dim view of you compromising their network for your convenience.

I recently reinstalled Windows 2000 on my family's laptop here, so that it wouldn't run so sluggishly slow on Windows XP with only 256 MB of RAM. Now, I've run into a peculiar problem that's router based. I'm running my sister's system with Windows XP and this laptop on the same network at their apartment. However, the Linksys BEFSR41 4-port switch is assigning each computer the same IP address, causing conflict. Is there a way in the router settings to easily and manually assign each computer a separate IP address?

Hey, this is my first post here so I thought i'd make it simple.

I recently just bought a 500gb external HD and I just transfered all of my D drive(111gb) over to it. Now with my D drive cleared I want to install windows vista ultimate on my D, and keep my Xp on My C drive. So I'm asking the steps I need to take in order to Dual Boot my windows XP and my future windows Vista with both on differnt drives.

Answer:Simple question, want simple answer

This is fairly easy:

0 - Yes, step 0. Make sure you have all the drivers you'll need (motherboard, video, sound, NIC, etc.). Vista should recognize your motherboard/controllers. The rest you can store in a folder on your external drive.

1 - Shut down and disconnect your external drive

2 - Boot to your Vista DVD

3 - Follow the prompts, and when asked where to install, select the D drive. Double check your choice before continuing!

4 - Allow Vista to format it NTFS

5 - Vista will handle the boot loader (where you can choose on power-up which OS to go with)

For the most part, Vista will do everything.

I was typing out a song, in wordpad, that I had written, which included letters above each line to show which chord was to be played at which time. I went to print the document and the printed page has the spacing for the chords off. I noticed this happened if you used either a different font or different size for the verse and the chords. To give you an exampe:

blah blah blah blah blah

would become:

blah blah blah blah blah

Obviously the simple fix is to use one font and size for the whole document, but out of curiousity, why is this happening? I played around with it a lot, and was always getting a printed page that had significantly different spacing that what was being shown on the screen, including print preview. I'm sure this is really simple for somebody, but I am not familiar with why it is happening.

P.S. I had to include the hyphens to illustrate my point because this wasn't handling the space issue well either.

Answer:simple question about wordpad, maybe too simple

Wordpad doesn't have very advanced formatting options in its code. its a small step above notepad, which has only basic formatting (spacing) as a simple text editor. Different fonts have slightly different character spacing. since Wordpad is a pretty basic text editor, it doesn't have character spacing formatting in its code, and spacing is read from the font alone.

When simple text without much formatting is sent to the printer, the printer reads the font and outputs the spacing based on the font.

simply put, both the printer and wordpad interpret the font spacing differently.

I have an IR receiver constantly attached to my computer. One program I use always registers it as a game controller, and stops me from using my actual game controllers in favor of it. Is it possible to automate disabling the IR receiver while the program runs, and re-enabling it after the application closes?

Answer:Is it possible to disable a device while a specific application runs?

Hi, if you know or can find a command to disable it, you can write a simple Autohotkey script- for example, a loop that periodically tests to see if your game is running, and if so, disable the device.

(Autohotkey is free and well supported- it can be programmed to test for the presence of a particular process in 1 line).

Probably 5 lines would suffice.

It comes with a comprehensive help file, detailing each command with examples.

Or you could create a shortcut to a script that
a. launches the game
b. disables the device and exits when you choose.

I have a laptop on my desk just for testing external access issues to our sites. I'd rather not.

I know it's been asked.. I think I've read over 20 posts on it with no clear and simple solution.

On my windows7 x64 station I have a hard wired LAN Network Connection and a USB wireless network conection. If both are up, IE uses the wired Lan connection. If I disable that LAN connection, IE uses the wireless. Great.. but?

What If I want to have both up? Reading emails and and accessing other intranet resources normally, but surfing via the wireless. Or even better, surfing from a specific browser or instance of a browser through the wireless Connection, and all others using activity through the wired Lan connection?

I'd like to do this without a Proxy or a VM. I understand there is a product called ForceBindIP that sounded very promising, but it does not support Windows 7 yet.

Is there maybe a firewall setting to route port 80 and 443 traffic to a specific Lan connetion? How about tweaking setting of the wired lan connection so that it fails to find DNS servers or anything on the outside?

I'm somewhat surprised this is not a setting somewhere already. I see great value having this.

there is an application that communicates with remote server. it connects to the server and the user selects the records/files (txt or tif files) it then starts downloading them.

the issue with it is that this application works from home or non company internet. but it doesnt works on company network.

i want to investigate whats stoping it.

it can successfully login to the server and shows the files needed to be downloaded. and it sometimes does starts downloading . but it fails midway through files.

we are behind a tmg.

and tmg client is working but no success with it.

so i want some application to be installed on that particular pc on which the application is not working .(again it works if non company internet is used). that should just monitor the packets sent and received by that application..

wireshark is too complicated.. and displays all packets flying by.

This is a question concerning anonymity and maintaining privacy. I can use a proxy server, http or socks, and that shows I am connecting from another address than my home IP. However, some sites also track things like browser language and time zone. Language I can simply change by using an English version of my browser rather than a Swedish one, but what about the time zone? Even if I connect through say a US proxy, it will show my time zone as central European.

The question: Is there any way to either prevent the time zone from being detected through the web, or change the time zone which is displayed?

There are plenty of Windows note taking applications, but they either use proprietary formats, have no folder structure or same content as HTML, XML or something else.

Does anybody have any recommendations?

I want to do that for a specific icon
Could any one help for that ?

Answer:Change Taskbar Icon Width for a specific Application

Hello Mialbedwy, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could use the same method of pinning the Recycle Bin to the taskbar in a folder as a toolbar, but use the application you want instead of the Recycle Bin. This will give it a wider space.

Recycle Bin - Pin to Taskbar

Hope this helps,

I purchased a game that has a known sound issue. It only plays all of the sound when using Stereo sound. 5.1 sounds are sadly incomplete. Currently I only know how to change all sound on my system to either be Stereo or 5.1. Is there any way that I can set this one application to use Stereo sound? Perhaps with a third party app?

Greetings everyone.  I've been dealing with this annoyance for two years.  I've been in contact with the support staff for the application, and have tried everything suggested, but the issue still stands.
The application is League of Legends.  The issue is when the game tries to launch lolclient.exe, I get this error: "Unable to connect to the server.  If you have a firewall, it may be blocking the connection.  Please refer to your firewall's documentation.  Would you like to retry the connection?"  
If I click "Retry," I'm stuck on a black screen for ~30 seconds and then it loads successfully.  Sometimes it waits for ~30 seconds, prompts the error again, and then it's successful.  It always eventually succeeds, but it takes a while to get there.  Besides using a VPN and replacing hardware, I've tried literally everything suggested by the community and the staff.  All necessary ports are forwarded and confirmed as open.  I do not experience any persistent network issues besides this one. 
I know that it's not actually related to my firewall for two reasons: 1. it happens on ANY computer on the network, regardless of software.  If I use the computer on another network, it connects immediately, and 2. I've completely uninstalled my firewall software, disabled Windows Defender, and ensured that all firewall-related services were stopped.  The router's internal firewall is disabled. &#... Read more

In Windows 7, the input method is application-specific, i.e., when you change the input method in one application, it doesn't affect other applications. However, in Windows 8 this seems to be changed: the input method is system-wide.

The problem is: I need to use Chinese input (either the embedded Windows Chinese input, or the one from Google, I prefer to use the later), which seems to only use US keyboard layout. However, I am using Finnish layout, so the locations of symbol keys are different. I need to frequently switch the input methods, which is really annoying. I really miss the one in Windows 7: the Chinese input was only effective for the application I needed to type Chinese

I downloaded a bespoke appn from a site called that allows you to put together your own pictures into specific book types and they then produce a proper coffee table stylebook, ideal for wedding pictures etc.

But for some reason as soon as I open the application it is trying to connect to the internet to check for updates as it is supposed to do and it cannot reach the server it's trying to. Similarly if you try and manually update it this happens.

I have allowed it as an exception in Windows Firewall so other thought is it's something to do with my router settings. Any suggestions? I can't understand why this would be the case though because AVG, Spybot, Adaware etc etc have never given me a problem like this and I've never had to manually configure my router in any way (it's a fairly standard Netgear one.)

I tried installing the same software at work and it worked straight away, so clearly it is something to do with my setup at home. Sigh....

I contacted Bob's Books and they said they've never had this problem before. And with the best will in the world they are not techies.

Any suggestions greatfully received as the (new) wife is hassling me to get it sorted so she can sort the wedding and honeymoon pictures out. Whoever said married life would be all bliss....

I have several versions of an application (Adobe After Effects) installed (I help test out prerelease versions of the software - which is nice) and I'd like to be able to set the precise application / file type association.

If I get a file's properties and 'Change...' the 'Opens with:' and browse to the exact application I want it to open with (After Effects version 13.6x123), then Apply/OK it, when I open the file, it just loads up the oldest version of the app (After Effects version 13.2) that Windows can find. Is there a better way to set filetype associations than the broken method that Windows is clearly attempting to use?

I have four versions of this app currently installed, all in C:\Program Files\Adobe. 90% of the time, I want to use the latest version, but occasionally need to use an older (public release) version to check how certain bugs/behaviours have changed, so need to keep all those versions installed.

I can use the workaround of opening the specific app and File > opening the file from within it, but it would be nice if I could get Windows to behave properly. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

As the title indicates, I'd like to restrict the amount of bandwidth or internet access speed of a specific application on my PC. Preferably during certain times only, but even a way to enable and disable this rule as I need would be fine.

I have a 1Mb ADSL with a measly 3GB monthly cap (it's painful, can't afford more at the moment though), and Steam turns out to be the nastiest, bloated, deceptive, sneaky, bandwidth-whor........<a while later>........ piece of software ever released to the world at large.

So, I keep setting all my games to "Do not update automatically" (which needs to be re-set after each time a game is run), and it supposedly doesn't download updates or patches while a game is being played... Despite this, if I decide to play Borderlands, after launching the game I have to alt-tab into Windows, go to Steam, and pause the next "Suspended" 250MB or 300MB update that it's busy downloading... I may have a slow connection by most of your standards, but at a pretty constant 100KB/s, 3GB isn't exactly going to last me that long.

Now, I do have a service from my ISP that gives me 5 times my download cap between 1am and 5am (more info, if you like).. So I can get a theoretical 15GB a month if I play my cards right. Is there any firewall out there that will allow me to limit the access speed of Steam to 5KB/s or 10KB/s during specific times...?

Please note: I've tried NetLimiter's trial, and it works perfectly, but it's a bit pr... Read more

I've looked around quite a bit on both this forum and Google and can't seem to find an answer, so if this has been answered before, please forgive me and be so kind as to provide a link to a relevant topic.

I am using a TiddlyWiki stored on a USB flash drive. What I would like to do is set a parameter on the shortcut so that it always launches with a specific portable browser, also stored on the pen drive, rather than the defauly browser that is stored on the computer it is attached to.

Likewise, I have a few PDFs that I use regularly between machines, and would like to have them open using a portable PDF reader (Sumatra) which is also stored on the flash drive. That way, the PDF will always open to my last saved page, regardless of which machine I am using.

The computers I use are a home desktop PC (Win 7), home netbook (Win XP) and work laptop (Win XP).

If there is a different way to achieve this without using shortcut parameters, I would be more than happy to give it a whirl.

So far I could figure out that I need to do this to show Application node:

eventvwr /c:Application
but I can't figure out how to specify provider in the /f: parameter, and the example given if I run "eventvwr /?" does not help much.

Any idea how to do it?

I am having a peculiar problem on my Windows 7 64-bit, which I noticed this week. Within the "Videos" folder, if I create a folder called "temp", I am not able to create any sub-folder within it through the right click menu. Picture attached. Now the funny thing is, if I create a sub-folder within it (thru linux since my laptop is dual boot), I can see everything in linux (files and folders). If I go back to Windows, the sub-folder is not visible. Only files are visible.

If I change the name of the main folder from "temp" to anything else, the sub-folders are then visible and so it the menu option.

This is not happening anywhere else on the disk, only within "Videos/temp". I have other folders within "Videos" and they behave fine.

Any thoughts?

Answer:No "Create new folder" option for a specific folder within Videos

Interesting, I don't even get New in the first context menu drop down for any folder created under Videos. This is on Windows 10, so there is something going on there (7, 8 and 10) that Microsoft thinks is important or useful.
