Using Folders to Save Your Homework 

Here’s a quick look at creating folders on your computer to keep your schoolwork organized. These directions are written for a PC, but the process is very similar on a Mac as well.

First, open the File Explorer or Finder (Mac) and browse to the area in which you wish to create your school folder.  Documents is a good location, but use whatever works for you.  

Opening Documents Folder

Next, right click (ctrl + click on a Mac) in the blank area and select New Folder.

Right click in the blank area

Select folder from the menu

The new folder will appear, and allow you to enter a name for it. Call this folder something like “OCCC”, “Homework”, or whatever you think will help you remember it.

A new folder appears

Double-click this folder to open it. You can then repeat the above steps to create folder for each of your courses within this folder.
