Right click and select New option to create a new folder. Type a folder name and press Enter key.
In Windows, files and folders can be easily arranged, managed and located in Libraries and Windows Explorer. The libraries feature provides a central place to manage files that are located in multiple locations throughout the computer. Windows Explorer is an application that provides detailed information about files, folders and drives. It is used to see how the files are organised. In Windows, files and folders are arranged in different views. The information can be viewed in different modes as follows: Thumbnail view, Icons View, Tiles view, List View and Details view. To find a file or a folder, click on Start and then type a word or part of a word in the search box. The search results appear as soon as you start typing in the search box.
