Go to the settings of your document library and open Advanced settings. Then just disable the functionality for that :)

Disable New Folder command

You can also do this by code C#:

    docLibrary.EnableFolderCreation = false;
  • But I want to do it using customaction or hidecustomaction in sharepoint 2013.
