HOW TO CREATE A NEW FOLDER ON WINDOWS 11

Adopting the latest version of Windows doesn’t mean learning a whole new set of shortcuts and methods. You can rest easy knowing that much of Windows 11’s functionality is similar enough to Windows 10. One area which doesn’t stray too far from the path that previous iterations created is how to create a new folder.

The following are two different methods for creating a new folder in Windows 11.

HOW TO CREATE A NEW FOLDER USING FILE EXPLORER:

If you prefer using File Explorer to create new folders in Windows 10, you’ll be pleased to learn you can still use the same method in Windows 11.

  1. Open File Explorer by right-clicking the taskbar and selecting File Explorer, pressing and holding Windows+E, or searching for it in the Start menu.

  2. Once in the File Explorer, select a location for the new folder, such as Desktop or any other file folder on your hard drive. Then, you can click on the New button in the Ribbon Menu at the top left and select Folder.

HOW TO CREATE A NEW FOLDER USING THE RIGHT-CLICK MENU:

In addition to using the Ribbon Menu to create new folders, Windows 11 users can create a new folder nearly anywhere their mouse cursor points. You can quickly create a new folder thanks to the highly contextualized and in-depth options found when right-clicking.

  1. Decide where and go where you’d like to make a new folder. If it’s on the desktop, then move your mouse cursor to an empty spot on the desktop.

  2. Once there, right-click with your mouse to bring up a context menu and hover over the New option.

  3. With your cursor over the New option, hover over the Folder option and left-click Folder. A new folder will be created.

HOW TO CREATE A NEW FOLDER ON WINDOWS 10

If you read the previous section, you’re in luck because the newest iteration essentially took its folder creation methods from past versions of Windows.

USING FILE EXPLORER:

At first blush, there are a few differences between the File Explorers found in Windows 10 and Windows 11. Though the latter’s Ribbon Menu is a bit more flashy, both versions function the same. As a result, these steps will look eerily similar.

  1. Open File Explorer by either searching for it in the taskbar or pressing Windows+E. Navigate to the folder that you will use to house your new folder.

  2. Once at your desired location, click the Home menu option near the top of the window. A new toolbar will appear, with a large New Folder button. Click New Folder to create a new folder.

  3. Alternatively, you can click on the folder icon at the top of the window to create a new folder.

USING RIGHT-CLICK:

The similarities between Windows 10 and Windows 11 continue, as you can also use a right-click menu to create a new folder wherever you want.

  1. Find a suitable location for your new folder, whether within File Explorer or on your Desktop.

  2. Once that location is selected, use your mouse’s right-click function to pull up a contextual menu. Then select the New option, followed by the Folder option. A new folder will be created in its location.

  3. You can use the same method when creating a new folder on your Desktop.
