Unable to create New Folder on Desktop: Yoga 710-14ISK Laptop (ideapad)

What: Yoga 710-14ISK Laptop (ideapad).


Problem: cannot create New Folder on Desktop


Process: I right-click on my desktop to create a 'new folder,' I get the usual list of possible commands.


I scroll to 'create new,' in order to create a new folder, the computer freezes for a second, the cursor becomes pixelated, the whole screen goes black for half a second, and then, seemingly, it returns to normal.


However, it closes out of the right-click box with all the commands, the cursor starts to freeze for about 3-5 seconds every 1-2 minutes (I can still click, but the cursor is frozen), and I lose the ability to use the TouchPad to scroll vertically and horizontally.


I have been able to restore the TouchPad and cursor by uninstalling and reinstalling the driver, but I am still unable to create a New Folder on the Desktop. I have tried to bypass the issue by creating a New Folder via File Explorer, but the same issue occurs. 


I would appreciate any suggestions.

This isssue is actually related to Windows 10, not with Yoga. Anyway, it's probably permission issues. Try to create a new account on your Windows and create a new folder on the desktop. If it works, it's related to your account, if it doesn't work, it's related to Windows 10
