TFS and Windows Shell integration

Team Foundation Power Tools adds integration for TFS into the windows shell. If you have installed the TFS PowerTools package and you cannot see it, it is because Windows Shell integration is not selected by default and you need to select it.


Once you have TFS windows shell integration you can interact with TFS’s source control directly from windows explorer:

Thanks a ton for this useful information, I installed the power tools but did not know that it will be show only folders which are synced with TFS..

Question: how to add a new folder/file to TFS using integrated Windows Explorer?
