How to Make a Subfolder

Save

Microsoft Windows' filing system grants you much control over data organization. You can add a near infinite number of sub-folders within any given root folder and compress, hide, archive, or create custom security profiles for them. You may add sub-folders using the command prompt, or Window's Graphical User Interface (GUI); however, creating folders via the GUI is easier for users unfamiliar with command prompt syntax.

Windows Vista and Later

  • Click "Start," "Computer," and double-click on the appropriate drive letter.

  • Navigate to the folder into which you'd like to put the sub folder (double-click on each folder to open it).

  • Click "Organize" at the top-left corner of the window, and click "New Folder."

  • Change the generic "New Folder" name to whatever you'd like, and press "Enter."

Windows XP & 2000

  • Click "Start," double-click "My Computer," and do the same on the appropriate drive letter.

  • Navigate to the folder into which you'd like to put the sub folder (double-click on each folder to open it).

  • Click "File," hover your mouse over "New," and click "Folder."

  • Change the generic "New Folder" name to whatever you'd like, and press "Enter."

Tips & Warnings

  • Make liberal use of sub folders; they're very helpful in keeping work organized.
