Easily and quickly create new folders in Code Explorer through the Web Access for TFVC and Git.


Previously you could only create new files from web access. To add a folder, you would need to use your local Git or TFVC repository. This meant that people who aren’t comfortable using Git or Visual Studio, could not add a folder. This extension helps solve that problem.


  1. Clone this repo
  2. Browse to the folder of the extension
  3. Publish the contents of the extension to a local or cloud web server
  4. The root of the extension should be at the root of the web server, for example: https://myserver/images/fabrikam-logo.png
  5. Update the extension manifest file (extension.json). To do this, update the namespace field to a globally unique value. For example: johnsmith.samples.foldermanagement. Also, update the baseUri field to be the fully qualified URL to the root of your web server, for example: https://myserver
  6. Install the extension into your Visual Studio Team Services account (see https://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/integrate/extensions/publish/overview)
