    Everything in this windw, which is not blue but has the white backgorund color, can be clicked to open the context menu:

    Just don't click on a file (which would open the file's actions) but click where there's no file (so it opens the context options for this folder, which is also, "Create New >" to create a folder of file, which is what I think you're looking for)

    Honestly I am not sure I understand what your actual problem seems to be?
    Well, maybe we were actually talking about different things, but when I want to get a right-click for "new" or "non-related to existing file" contextual menu, it's a plain chore to find a space that won't be associated with existing file or directory.
    Most common use-case being a right-click somewhere to paste content from somewhere else, or creating a new file/directory.

    With time, I more or less got used to it, but it drove my parents insane in every file explorer that had that same asinine idea.
    It's extremely counter-intuitive compared to file explorers in which you have enough space between files that you can right-click in between them and get the proper context.

    You'll have to reach for the keyboard anyways to enter the new directory's name / the commands.
    Irrelevant answer.
    First, not everyone likes/learns keyboard shortcut.
    Second, not every user has a full-fledged keyboard with dedicated Fn keys (*strongly eyeballing laptops*).
    Third, f10 is very impractical when you have one hand already on the mouse to manipulate cursor and the other hand attentively staying on the left because you're in copy/paste operations (including in filenames).

    Keyboard shortcuts existing are a requirement for a good UX, not a replacement for crappy UI.

      Here's another problem: the mouse scroll-wheel

      Detailed view: Scroll down is scroll down
      Tiled or Icon view: Scroll down is scroll down
      Compact view: Scroll down is scroll right?
