SharePoint New Menu missing in modern experience

Occasional Visitor

Hi all

I have accidentally removed the New Menu option from SharePoint by unticking all the available files in the list under Edit Menu. I was planning to add a group of template files and remove the other file types. I clicked OK before adding the template files and now the New Menu option won't display. I can't find where to modify the menu items. 

When you first open the SharePoint page new appears for about a second and disappears again.



Thanks in advance. Wayne.

Hello! You've posted your question in the Community Discussion space, which is intended for discussion around the Tech Community website itself, not product questions. I'm moving your question to the SharePoint space - please post SharePoint questions here in the future. 



You had me stumped for a little while.


Go to library settings -> Advanced - > Content Types -> Allow management of content types?   


Change to Yes. 


Go to library settings again, you can now add back in content types.
