2.7. Folders

Folders, also referred to as directories (especially in a Unix context), give disks a hierarchical structure. A disk can hold any number of files and folders, and these folders can contain more files and other folders, ad infinitum.

Folders are colored blue by default, although some applications like to include their icon on the folder as well. This is similar to the default folders in a user's Home directory, which have icons to suggest their intended use. For example, the Documents folder has a generic document icon, the Library folder has four book icons, etc.
