Office 365 (OneDrive for Windows) - Create files and folders in OneDrive

When your files saved to OneDrive for Business, you can create files and folders to manage your work. Creating files and folders in OneDrive will allow you to access them from anywhere.

Create a file in OneDrive
  1. Select New and choose the type of file you want, like Word, Excel, or PowerPoint.

  2. To rename the file, click the title of the file in the title bar, for example Document, and then type a name. All changes are automatically saved in the Office online apps, so when you go back to OneDrive, your new document is already saved.

Create a file in an Office desktop app
  1. Open a desktop app, like a Word document, Excel workbook, or PowerPoint presentation.

  2. Select File > Save As.

  3. For the location, select your OneDrive for Business account.

  4. Type a name for the file.

  5. Select Save.

Create folders
  1. Select New > Folder.

  2. Type a name for the folder.

  3. Select Create.

  4. Select the files you want and drag them into the folder.
