    What you’ll learn to do: locate and manage files and folders.

    As you use your computer to create and download files, it’s easy to become buried in a sea of tiny icons with vague names. Just as it is important to organize papers so that you can find them later, it is important to organize your computer files by creating folders and putting files inside of them.

    An image of a man sitting amongst a cluttered assortment of physical files is directly next to an image of a windows file center. This shows the ease and simplicity of storing files virtually.
    Failing to organizing your files makes it harder to find them later.
