New text document option missing

Written by

When I right click on my desktop to start a new "Text Document" the option to start a new text document does not appear. Several solutions below


  1. Try kellys korner for your fix... Line #153 (on the left)
     
  2. Check that this key exists

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.txt\ShellNew\NullFile

    If it doesn`t exist,create it.

    Right click in the right hand pane of the ShellNew key,
    Select New/String value
    then type: NullFile - Similar ideas HERE
     
  3. Goto c:\windows\shellnew and copy in a text file, access the right click menu and see if New Text Document is back and does not matter if you leave it or delete it after this.
