3. In the Folder dialog, enter a folder name in the Folder Name box, and then select Create.
When done, you should see your new folder in the document library and can start adding files or creating subfolders within it. To add a new file, see Create a new file in a document library. To upload existing files, see Upload files and folders to a document library.
. If you don't see your new folder in the library, refresh your browser. In some cases, you might consider using views instead off orders. You can filter, group, and sort files in views. If you have a large library, a combination of views and folders might work best.
