How to delete a directory that was accidently created?

While in Windows Explorer, Windows directory the Edit, Select All, Edit, Cut and was Paste to a "New Folder" directory. Now the computer is looking for this directory instead of the windows directory - How do I remove the "New Folder" directory without messing up the loading of windows?

WARNING: This is just a guess.

It seems to me, that if you simply do the reverse of what you did by accident, then your computer should be back to normal. So, you could try going to the "New Folder" directory, then Edit, Select All, Edit, Cut. Then go to (or create) a windows directory and then Paste. But be careful. I do not have experience doing what I am suggesting. If you don't want a risk, then don't try this. Whatever you do, I suggest a backup.

Thank you for you response. I had to go into the Registry and edit files that were looking for the "New Folder" directory. Several were created. But got it fixed.
