Organize Documents


Dear Computer Lady,

In the software program, Word Perfect, you create folders and then you can also create sub folders within those folders.  Can sub folders be created in MS Word.  I have Windows XP version. The folders are much easier to manage with sub folders because you don’t have all of these different folders on your documents listing.

Thank you, Peggy 

Dear Peggy,

I agree with you that it is much easier to keep track of your files by creating folders and sub-folders. The good news is that it is easy to create those folders when saving files in almost any modern program. Just follow these directions using Microsoft Word.

1. Open Microsoft Word and create your document. 

2. When you are ready to save your document, click on “File” and then “Save”

3. The “Save As” window will open to your “My Documents” folder.

4. If you wish to open a folder already in your “My Documents” folder, double click on that folder to open it. When you are ready to create a new folder, click on the small icon in the toolbar that looks like a small folder with a starburst over the upper right hand corner.

5. In the New Folder window, type the name for your new folder, then click “OK”. You can repeat this process to create additional sub folders.

6. The “Save As” window will now open up in the new folder. Type the name for your file in the file name box, and then click on the “Save” button.
