You have created a new project or opened an existing project…

You want to create a new Kotlin or Java class…

You right-click on a package as always…

However, there is no “New Java Class” or “New Kotlin Class” option…

Let’s Fix This

  1. Go to root package/folder of your project.
  2. Right-click on it.
  3. Select “Mark Directory as” → “Sources Root”
  4. Now, you can create a new classes as you want.
