What is the Purpose of Proper File and Folder Organization? It is important to keep the files on your computer organized and up-to-date. Just as with paper files, the goal of computer file management is to ensure that you can find what you’re looking for, even if you’re looking for it years after its creation. Proper file organization starts with folder structure. Creating folders and sub or nested folders will allow you to neatly and logically organize your files.

Effective File Naming • Here are some basic tips to remember when naming files: • Give your files specific names that make sense. • weekly_reading_list • parent_permission_slip • Avoid using special characters in a file name. (\ / : * ? “ < > | [ ] & $ ,) • Use underscores instead of periods or spaces. • Try to limit file names to 25 characters or less. • Include version numbers for revisions.
Differences Between Save and Save AS Clicking on Save will save a document. If you have already saved the document, clicking on Save will overwrite the original file. Clicking on Save As will allow you to save the document with a different name or to a different location. Clicking on Save As will NOT replace your file. It will keep the original file intact and save changes to a new file.
Creating a Folder While Saving a File Create a file . Choose Save As when you are ready to save the file. In the Save As dialogue box, click on the Create New Folder icon in the top right corner. In the New Folder dialogue box, give the folder a name and click OK. The new folder will be created and it will be open for you to save the document in.
