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.

  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).

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