Chapter 3. Managing Files > Creating a New Folder

Creating a New Folder

Finding, saving, and opening documents are made easier if you group related files into folders. For example, you might want to create a folder for all your word processing documents, or you might create folders for each person who uses your computer. Creating a folder enables you to keep your documents separated from the program's files so that you can easily find your document files.

You can create a folder within any of the existing folders on your computer. Follow these steps:

1.
Open the folder in which you want to create the new folder.

tip

Windows XP includes several shortcuts to the My Documents folder. Therefore, you might want to set up all your document folders within this one key system folder.

2.
In the Task pane, click Make a new folder. The new folder appears in the window, and the name is highlighted (see Figure 3.5).

Figure 3.5. You can add a new folder to your hard drive.


3.
Type a new name and press Enter. The folder is then added.
