How to Create a New OneDrive Folder - dummies

By Nancy C. Muir

In today’s collaborative world, it is often necessary to share data you have stored on your laptop with others. There are a few ways you can do this, but OneDrive is an option which allows you to manage all shared content in one place.

You can keep your shared files in order by placing them in folders on OneDrive. After you’ve placed content in folders, you can then share those folders with others. This ability to share individual folders gives you a measure of security, as you don’t have to share access to your entire OneDrive content with anybody. To create a new OneDrive folder, follow these simple steps:

  1. Go to OneDrive and sign in with your Microsoft account if prompted.
  2. If you want the new folder to be created within one of the three default folders, click a folder first.
  3. On the toolbar, click New.
  4. In the menu, click Folder.
  5. Enter a name for the new folder.
  6. Click the Create button.
