How did you learn this incorrect fact?  

When talking about three fold, have a look at
http://wiki.scribus.net/index.php/Creating_a_brochure and there are a
couple there, which one do you want to create?

What did you try? What did you expect? Having never seen Publisher, I
can't even guess what it does.

It only takes a minute to make your brochure, one way is to

1. Create a new 2 page landscape document with no margins
2. Place guides at the folds
3. Mentally number the 6 sections 5,6,1 2,3 4
4. Add your text frames and text/ image frames and images/Shapes etc as
you want.

Then print it I guess

If you do it all the time, save it as a template for future use.
