  • new folder only on windows 2008 ent r2 right click

    Hello everybody

    I install a few new windows 2008 ENT R2 servers.

    When I click right click in C folder or D folder I'm getting New-> Folder only , I'm not getting list like "Shortcut" or "Text File" ...etc. ).

    Only When I'm using Administrator user , it's all right, with another user (also with administrator priv..) I'm not getting it.

    What is the reason ?
    What to do?

    Daniel Help me .

          Hi again

          I only installed the operating system (Win2008 ENT r2) and after that create 2 new profiles , on those profiles I'm getting those problems but in administrator profile everything is ok.

          the symptom is that when I go to c folder or d folder and choose right click ->new ->I'm getting only folder instead of new->folder
          shortcut
          text document
          and so ....

          that all.

          I'm sure that somebody got it some how.

                I build virtual windows 2008 ENT R2 and build user test (administrator priv..)
                so you can see it on real.

                  Tomerwall1, I have modified the image you posted as it was toooo big (area wise) for the lower resolution screens/monitors.

                  You said you have the context menu when you logon as Administrator but not when you logon as a User. Is that correct? If yes, then you may have a corrupt Default User profile.

                  2 2 was 1 2.

                    Hello biggles77

                    Its not right , We build 2 environment (1 with 10 servers and 1 with 1 server at my home) , in both the same problem.

                    I'm sure that there is something in gpedit or security for getting out from this.

                    any other profile instead of administrator will get this problem.

                        Do you have another server which does NOT do this?

                        If so:
                        Delete user profiles and the default profile on the problem server
                        Copy the default profile from the good server
                        Log on again as a user on the problem server
                        See if fixed

                        Alternatively:
                        Copy administrator (working) profile into the default profile on the problem server
                        Delete all other profiles except administrator
                        Log on again as a user
                        See if fixed

                          Did you build the 11 Servers one by one or did you build 1 and copy or Export/Import it to make the other 10?
                          Is this Server 2008 R2 media a clean copy from Microsoft or is it a backup copy you have used because the original DVD has been damaged?

                          There is NO security setting or GPOs that will do this in a clean install.
                          1 1 was a racehorse.
                          2 2 was 1 2.

                            yesterday night , I install new fresh windows 2008 ENT r2 that I downloaded from Microsoft for 180 days,
                            I build 2 new profiles, test1 (user priv) and test2 (administrator priv ) , and in both when you enter c drive or d drive and right click on new you are getting only folder instead of list of things.

                            In administrator profile everything is ok.

                            There is something with privilege , I'm sure .

                            This is fresh installation in different environment with fresh copy directly from Microsoft.

                            Help me.

                            Try also.

                              Logon as Administrator (the built-in Admin account) and post a screen capture of what you get when you right click at the exact SAME place as you did with test2 Administrator User.
