Hi,

I have a fairly new Lenova laptop and as the title says, I’m trying to group various documents, poems, literary writings and music compositions into separate groups. Right now, it’s all mixed and they are all under the “documents” folder. There is too much in this folder. Does anyone know how I would start to set this up and then label each folder?

Thank you.

Do you have a standard naming convention?

I'd open up 2 instances of Windows Explorer, one in Documents. Add new folders in here for whatever you like to call them (e.g. Poems, Literary, Music, and so on)

The second Windows Explorer should be in Documents as well, showing the subfolders you created.

Drag and drop each document from the first Explorer window into the appropriate subfolder.

The reason I ask if you have a standard naming convention is that you can do a Search My Computer with say Poem*.doc and it will open up an Explorer window with all the matching categories.

Or, if they all have different extensions (.txt., .mus, etc.) you could filter on those.

But if you only have a bunch - not thousands - a drag and drop is easy enough.

By keeping the subfolders under Documents you still only need to back this up and everything should be saved in the subfolders.
