Shortcut to Create a New Folder in XP

Lifehacker posted about a tiny but useful feature of Windows 7 – a keyboard shortcut to create a new folder.

On Windows XP, it’s still missing. In the past I’ve always used a right click with wf. It gets the job done but it uses the mouse, which is slow. Now that Microsoft has given this a more or less official shortcut, I decided to emulate it on XP with AutoHotKey.

It’s extremely simple and after using it I wonder why I didn’t do it sooner.

Here’s the AutoHotKey code to make the magic happen.
