Creating specific folders is a great way to organize your email, and one of our readers is learning how to do it with a new email provider. “How do you create new folders in Outlook.com? Starting to use that email program, but haven’t figured out how to do that. (I want to be able to put emails in certain folders).”

Creating new mail folders in Outlook.com is super-easy. Just go to your inbox at www.outlook.com.

In the folders pane on the left side, you’ll see the option for New folder.

When you click New folder, a field to type the name of the new folder will appear. Type the name and press enter.

As you can see, I have several folders in my account.

Once you’ve created a folder, you have a few options. Right click on the folder, and you can create a new subfolder or rename the folder.

For example, I’ve added two sub-categories under WorldStart for messages from different coworkers.

If I choose to Rename a folder, I can just start typing the new name and hit enter.

To remove a folder in its entirety, just choose Delete.

To empty the contents of the folder, but still retain the folder, choose Empty folder.

In the next part of this series, we’ll look at how you can use your newly-created files to organize your email inbox.
