Your computer is just like a filing cabinet!

If you look around your office you most likely have a desk and a filing cabinet at a minimum. The top of your desk, or the desktop, most likely has things scattered all around it. Your filing cabinets are full of folders and loose pieces of paper. Some of those folders have folders within folders within folders. Some of those folders are most likely empty. If something is lost you have to dig through every folder.

I’ve created a series of tutorials that will teach you how to manage your computer filing cabinet. We will take a look at working with folders, creating new folders, renaming folders, and creating shortcuts to folders. My experiences been that the best thing you can do is to not have too many folders. However, if you do have a lot of folders you will be a find things.
