2.      Move either up or down to the menu item titled "new". 
3.      Within this menu, move to the "new folder" option, and press Enter. 
4.      By deefault, Windows will have created a folder name for you,
something like "New Folder". Type a more meaningful name for the folder, and
press ENTER.
