Microsoft Windows : How to Create a Folder

Microsoft Windows : How to Create a Folder


Hi, my name is Michael Burton with MichaelBurtonfilms.org
located in Salt Lake City, Utah. We’re talking here about how to use Microsoft Windows. Now
I’m going to teach you how to create a new folder in Microsoft Windows. This is probably
one of the most easiest tasks to do and I’m going to show you a couple of different ways
to, to achieve this. Let me start off by saying that Windows XP is a registered trademark
of Microsoft and I am in no way affiliated with Microsoft. Probably right off the bat
one of the easiest ways to create a new folder, especially if you want one on your desktop
is just to right click on your mouse and scroll down to new. This is your new drop down menu.
You can create a lot, you can either create new shortcuts or you can create new folders,
new briefcase, new documents, new whatever you want. Here’s your, you know your drop
down list. All we want to deal with, all we want to deal with right now is creating a
new folder. So we’re just going to select new folder. Bam! There’s our new folder right
there. We can title it whatever we want. Let’s title it, our, oops, our wonderful new folder.
There’s our wonderful new folder that we can place anywhere on the desktop. We can even
open it and see that there’s nothing in there. We can, for example, take this file HP opener
that I have on the desktop and drag it over and drop it into our new, our wonderful new
folder and there you have it. We have a brand new, new folder. Another way to do this, let’s
create a wonderful new folder part 2, by, let’s go down to the start menu. You open
the start menu. Let’s say we want to create a folder within a folder. Let’s try the my
documents folder. Here are, well, my documents. You can see that there are already some folders
in here. If you notice up here on the left, there’s some text, share this folder, publish
this folder on the web and make a new folder. That will make a new folder, not on the desktop
but make a new folder right here in our my documents folder. Then we can label this whatever
what we want. Let’s try our wonderful new folder part 2. So there’s our wonderful new
folder part 2 and again, we can double click on it, open it up and see that there’s nothing
in there. We can put whatever we want in there. There’s our wonderful new folder part 2. The
other method to do this on under the my documents folder is not to just come up here and click
on the tab, make a new folder. But we can also right click on the my documents folder
and do the same thing that we do on the desktop where we scroll down to new and then click
folder. Again it will create a new folder for us that we can put as many documents in
it as we would like.

  11. I was googling how to add a new folder shortcut to group folders…

    Dear Google, i know how to create a folder, please, i have serious ADD issues and am easily distracted.
    I'd appreciate it if you didn't lead me to video's like this one.

    In all seriousness, I have no idea how i ended up here, or how people manage not to be able to create a new folder, and do manage to somehow look it up on YouTube.
    In any case, if this video helped, congratulations! 🙂

    Cheers from… Someone who's lost…
    Just…

  12. feel ashamed i have to watch this especially since i have computer training and even designed websites and software, but its been years and years since ive used one and forgot how to create a folder. I remember how to do the other stuff but some reason forgot how to create a folder and move files.

  13. Is there a way to move a deletion protected folder into the recycle bin for storage in that location? I would like to place such into the recycle bin so that I can then in turn cut and paste anything in the recycle bin that I want to further delete, into that secondary folder, within the recycle bin; thereby avoiding otherwise over cramping the recycle bin window itself, over time with, thousands of items – while not having to permanently delete those same items from the recycle bin, itself . . . i.e., by storing them within the deletion protected folder, that'd be placed in the recycle bin – in case I ever need to refer back to any of them again . . . thereby bypassing any potential need to otherwise have to use other recovery methods or recovery software – which generally doesn't do very well at recovery of items, once completely deleted and overwritten. Thanks for any help you may be able to avail in this regard.
