Organize Documents Using File Folders
Organizing your Microsoft Word documents using file folders can help you keep them organized and easily accessible. Here are the steps to organize documents using file folders in Microsoft Word:
Open Windows File Explorer and navigate to the location where you want to create a new file folder.
Right-click on an empty space and select “New Folder” from the context menu.
Give the new folder a name that corresponds to the type of documents you want to store in it, such as “Reports” or “Invoices.”
Double-click on the new folder to open it.
In Microsoft Word, open the document you want to organize.
Click on “File” in the top left corner of the screen.
Click on “Save As” and select the new file folder you created in step 3 as the location to save the document.
Give the document a name that describes its content, such as “Q1 Sales Report” or “June Invoice.”
Click on “Save” to save the document in the new file folder.
Repeat steps 5-9 for any other documents you want to organize in the same file folder.
On a computer, a file is a discrete unit of information. It could be all text, a picture, a sound, a video or like this file a combination of text and formatting codes. It could also be a set of instructions to the computer like a word processing application, sometimes called an executable file ( a set of instructions that can be run or executed).
