Windows offers a variety of options for organizing folders and files in the ways that work best for you.
The easiest and most effective way to organize your stuff in Windows 7 is to use file arrangements in your libraries.
You can arrange files in the Documents library by author, for example, or you can arrange the Music library by artist if you’re looking for an album or song by a particular band.
To arrange a library
- In the taskbar, click the Windows Explorer button .
- In the navigation pane (the left pane), click a library (such as Music).
- In the library pane (above the file list), click the Arrange by menu, and then choose a property. For example, in the Music library, you can choose Artist to quickly arrange your music collection by artist.
