Explorer.exe - Add New Folder [Button]?

I would like to add a button to the bar indicated in explorer.exe 's file browser.
The button in question, is intended to "Add New Folder"s, to the currently displayed directory(folder) path. I'm not sure what steps to take, to add such a button to the explorer > toolbar > customize list?
Maybe some one can give me some information on how to make this happen?

Please see the below image for further description of the requested functionality.

Please note, I do -Not- want to include a new bar, Simply add an icon to the pre-existant tool bar.

  2. Windows Xp already has its own creating "New Folder" button on Explorer's common taskpane (webview pane) on Windows Explorer by default (screenshot: ), however, you can have Baxbex New Folder as New Folder button on Windows Explorer toolbar as well as Open and save dialog box. Too bad it has only Windows "old" 98 style icon, not matching with new XP / Vista style, so i have recreated/skinned it with Vista style icon! See the screenshot: and cleaner dialog box (with common XP/Vista manifest visual style control for Explorer shell extension): No installation required, just register the dll as activeX library using regsvr32 or batch file (included), so easy to do, and easy to remove too...

    Download it here (Baxbex New Folder with Vista style icon):

    Btw if you also wanted Baxbex FolderBox skinned with Vista style icons (the original had "old" 98 style icon too, so i've just reshacked it with Vista style icons). See screenshots of it on XP and 7 (yeah it works well on both XP and Windows 7 too) : and

    Download FolderBox with Vista style icons here:

    Works well on 98, ME, 2000, Windows XP, 2003, also Vista and Windows 7 as well.

    Anyway, hopefully they would be useful, cya... :)
  3. (Updated) Get "New Folder" Button on Windows Explorer Toolbar in XP For Free and Better... :

    - Updated (Patch only):
    If you already have standard/original Baxbex New Folder application installed ( ), then you can also just download this smaller patch to get the same Vista style icon for Baxbex New Folder as i said before (to patch bxNewFolder.dll):

    Screenshots: and

    All credits to Baxbex for the nice freeware.

    Hope that it would be useful, especially for XP users. Anyway good luck...

    PS: You can also visit my thread on Deviantart for more info, tools & applications, etc here : cya... :)
