    Ever since I upgraded to Yosemite I can no longer create New Folders on my Desktop and cannot move Folders from an existing folder to the Desktop, I tried doing most of the usual procedures but no result.

    ----------

    I can't even move a file from an existing folder onto the Desktop..I need help, a bit annoying..

    How did you upgrade?

    Have you tried repair permissions?

    Run Disk Utility and run "Repair Permissions" on the HDD. It maybe you have mis-set permissions somewhere preventing you from creating on the desktop.
