I am no longer able to create new sub folders in my Finder window
The File/New folder command (shift/cmd/N) is greyed out
I have been able to work around by creating a new folder on the dektop and dragging it to the folder I want to put the subfolder in
Can anyone help please?

Sounds like it might be a permissions issue. Have you tried running Permissions Repair in Disk Utility.

Then you create another one for testing purposes.
