Create or delete a folder in a list or library

Folders provide one way to group and manage content in a list or library. If folders are enabled, you can add folders to most types of lists and libraries.

Depending on your situation, you might consider using views instead of folders, because they enable content to be filtered, grouped, and sorted in multiple ways. If you have a large list of library, you might consider a combination of views and folders. Find links about organizing lists and libraries in the See Also section.
