How to Add Folders to SharePoint Servers


Microsoft SharePoint server Web folders are network locations where users can store their files and publish documents for viewing in Web browsers. You can view files and folders on SharePoint Web servers just as you view files and folders on network file servers or your computer hard disk. When you save a file to a SharePoint Web folder, you store the file on a Web server. By adding files to the Web folders on SharePoint servers, you can give users the access and ability to view your documents in Web browsers.

  • Click "Start" in Windows, and then click "Internet Explorer." Go to the location of your SharePoint server by typing its Web address into the location box of the browser. Enter your username and password when prompted on the login screen.

  • Click "Upload Document" on the "Upload" menu.

  • Click "Browse" to find the file that you want to add. Select the file, and then click "Open."

  • Select the "Overwrite Existing File(s)?" check box in the "Upload Document" section. Click "OK."

  • Enter the information about your document into the boxes with the red asterisk, such as the title, document version and authors on a form that appears in the window. Click "OK" to add the file to the Web folder on your SharePoint server. Wait for the completion of the procedure, which typically takes three to five minutes.
