Without them, there is a high risk that we would get overwhelmed by the clutter. Folders in Windows 10 allow users to organize the work and information that’s stored on their computers. So, how do you create a new folder in Windows 10?
Creating a new folder in Windows 10

- Right click on the space and hover your cursor over “New”.
- In the dialogue box that appears, choose “Folder.”
- Give your new folder an appropriate name.
