    A common method to organize your files is to place them in folders, which can contain files and other folders. Folders can be stored on multiple locations on your PC. The specific location or address allows your computer to keep track of where each file is located. You may also create a Windows File Explorer window for each folder you are working in. Files and Folders may be moved between folders by clicking on the file/folder and dragging the file/folder to the new location.
