My Briefcase option is not available in XP PRO

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.general (More info?)

Adding "My Briefcase" is not available when I right click the desktop and
select "NEW" in XP PRO.

Where is it?

Thanks

    Download and install Tweak UI from http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx, select the Templates section and see if it is checked the 'Briefcase' box.

    If the above didn't work, copy and paste this text into Notepad, save as a .reg file and combine it (double-click it):

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.bfc]
    @="Briefcase"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.bfc\ShellNew]
    "Command"=hex(2):25,00,53,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,52,00,6f,00,6f,00,\
