Folders on the Fly

Friday, November 16th, 2007 by | Filed Under: MS Office Help

Folders on the Fly

Not too long ago, I discussed creating new folders from within the MS Office programs. It’s a handy trick to know so that you can create a new space for the new document or workbook you just finished.

I had a reader submit a question shortly thereafter, asking how to accomplish this trick in MS Office 2007.

Good question!

And here’s your answer.

You can go to either the Save As or the Open window, but of course, we now access it either through the Office Button or the Quick Access Toolbar.

In either location, you should be looking at the typical navigation windows to find your way through the tangled web of your computer files.

The button you’re looking to locate is at the top of the window. It’s called the New Folder button.

Click it.

Once you do, you will not get a special window where you can name your folder as you did in previous versions of MS Office. Instead, the program simply puts a folder into the list alphabetically, named “New Folder.” (I know, it’s not so creative, but it’s easier to find that way!)

The name of the new folder will be highlighted so that you can immediately rename it to something more useful.

Type your new folder name and then hit the Enter key.

Voila. The folder is renamed and shuffled to its new home!
