Creating Folders in a Library in Windows 7?

How do I create a folders in a library (in this case Documents)? I only seem to have the option of adding already existing folders. I need to create them and put files in them. I had them before but some folders were accidentally deleted. I have a copy on an detachable external drive but can't figure out how to put a copy of them back on my computer.

In older versions of windows this used to be so easy. Now I can't get Windows to do much of anything

Thanks for your help.
