Ok – here’s the situation. You’ve got a library all set up and you want to add folders to the library, but when you go there, the ‘New Folder’ button is not available (not enabled) in the ribbon – it’s disabled. Have no fear, it’s not as dark and dreary as you would normally think.

Once navigated to the library itself, click the Library tag in the ribbon, then go to Library Settings. Once there, under General Settings, click on ‘Advanced Settings’. Go down on the page to the ‘Folders’ section. On the right, you will see 2 radio buttons (Make “New Folder” command available?). Just click the ‘Yes’ radio button, and then click the ‘OK’ button at the bottom of the page. That’s it – you’re done!
