On page 1, we learned how to start the program, what it's purpose is and how to display it in different ways.

Again your list will not look like mine, but the Folder option will be.
In windows 10, right click anywhere in the open window & select New.
Next, when you click the Folder, you will see a new folder displayed in the right pane with the name New Folder highlighted. Do not click the mouse. Just type a name for the folder. If you do not have a "My Downloads" folder, type it. If you already have one, type My Stuff or some other title for storing files.
You can't see it in this static image, but there should be a visible blink to the right of the word Folder indicating a rename function. Once you have the folder created and named, you are ready to put files in it.
You can create documents in a program and save them directly in the new folder or you can take existing files and move them to this folder.
To move files into the new folder, find the file in the right pane and select it (highlight it).
Then you want to mark the file for Cut using the menu, icon or keyboard. Click here to learn about Cut, Copy and Paste if you are not familiar with it.
