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.
