Create a Folder on Your Desktop in Microsoft Windows

This works for all versions of Windows.

Right-click with your mouse anywhere on your desktop, as long as the area is blank.

From the menu that appears, left-click on New.

Another menu will come up (yours may look different than mine!). Left-click on Folder.

You'll get a new folder on your desktop. Your cursor will be automatically placed inside the folder name, so you can immediately type the folder name.

Type the desired folder name and hit Enter. That's it.

If you ever want to change the folder name, right-click the folder, and choose Rename. Type the new name and hit Enter. debuted on May 26, 2005. provides examples of Formulas, Functions and Visual Basic procedures for illustration only, without warranty either expressed or implied, including but not limited to the implied warranties of merchantability and/or fitness for a particular purpose.
