Create Folders in OneDrive

In your OneDrive account, you can create folders and upload files and folders. We recommend that you create a folder for each of your classes and name the folder accordingly, for example "ENG‑111." Then you can save all your documents related to ENG-111 in that folder.

  1. Click "New" at the upper-left side of the page.
