Let’s Make a New Folder!

Monday, November 15th, 2004 by | Filed Under: File & Disk Management, Windows Explorer

Let’s say you would like to have some sub-folders (a sub-folder is a folder within a folder) in your “My Documents” folder. You could set one up for each member of your family so everyone’s stuff stays separate, or for specific jobs.

Here’s how:

Right-click the Start button, select Explore from the little menu that pops up. Windows Explorer will open. You’ll see the “My Documents” folder on the list to the left. Double-click it. From the RIGHT hand pane, right-click your mouse and select, “New” and “Folder “.

A new folder will pop up. Type in a name for it and you’re all set.

If you happen to click your mouse before the folder is named, you can right-click it and select “Rename” from the little menu that pops up.

You can also right click while inside any folder (or even on the desktop) and select “New” and “Folder ” to create one.

Of course, Windows XP had to be different. Any folder you open has a ” Make new folder ” link that you just click and the new folder appears, ready to be named.

You also will not find the Explore link in the XP Start Menu. All you do is right click any folder and choose “Explore”.
