A new hotfix has been released (2796764) to fix the issue where the “new” option is missing in the context menu on a redirected drive using a Remote Desktop Session. Have been running into this issue too, glad that it’s fixed.
Root of a redirected drive:
“…Consider the following scenario:
- On a client computer, you open Remote Desktop Connection and enable drive redirection.
- You create a Remote Desktop session to a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.
- You browse to the root folder of the redirected drive in the Remote Desktop session.
- You right-click an active region to display the shortcut menu.
In this scenario, the New option is missing on the shortcut menu…”
