To do step 1-3 with a macro use this macro:
RunTool "Clone File"
Attention: The tool name is case-sensitive.
To your question about basic file functions in the File Tree View
: Although I understand that this would be helpful for you, this is not the function of a view.
You could create a new folder in the standard Open and Save As dialog. Have you ever noticed the little "Create New Folder" tool button in the toolbar of these dialogs. And what most Windows users also don't know, that inside the standard Open and Save As dialog the popup menu opened when clicking on the secondary (right) mouse button in these dialogs have all functions of the Windows Explorer. The standard Open and Save As dialogs are mini explorer windows.
You could also configure a tool to start the Windows Explorer with several options, for example with the path of the current file as root directory - see Windows Explorer Command-Line Options
Or you simply start the Windows Explorer with the Windows built in hotkey combination WIN+E (WIN = key which looks like the Microsoft Windows logo on the lower left corner of your keyboard).
