          Hello J Steinman,

           

          Here are instructions on how to create a folder (or sub-folder) in Windows and Mac:

           

          WINDOWS

          1) On the desktop (main screen), right click the My Computer icon.

           

          2) Select Explore from the list that appears.

          The screen will change, exposing a window with two panes. On the left is a list of all your drives and on the right is a list of the drives sorted in categories.

           

          3) To keep things simple we are going to create a folder in My Documents. Click My Documents. The screen changes. The left side of the window lists all the folders already in the My Documents folder. On the right is a list of the existing folders in My Documents.

           

          4) Right click in any empty space in the right pane.

           

          5) Select New from the list and it will expand. Select Folder from the new list.

          A new folder is created at the bottom of the list of files and folders with the name New Folder. It will be highlighted if you haven’t moved the mouse.

           

          6) Type in a name for the folder. e.g. Letters.

           

          7) Hit Enter key and the folder will have the new name you typed.

           

          8) Folder has been created!

           

          MAC

          1) Click the desktop if you want to create the folder on the desktop; otherwise, open a Finder window and navigate to where you want to create the folder.

           

          2) Choose File > New Folder, or press Shift–Command (⌘)–N.

           

          If the New Folder command is dimmed, you can’t create a folder in the current location. For example, you can’t create a folder in the All My Files section of the Finder sidebar.

           

          3) Enter a name for the folder, then press Return.

           

          I hope this helps.
