When it comes to creating a folder or directory when working with Excel 2013 then we have more options. I will be based on two options.

  • The first option is to create a folder in the Windows 7 operating system
  • Another option is to create a folder when you save Excel workbooks

The first option I will not describe because I think that would ye need to know. If you can not browse the Internet network and tutorials. For the second option I can say the following:

Create a New Folder or Directory via the Save As dialog box

If you're working in Excel and want to archive or save your work ie workbook then you can create a new folder (directory) by clicking on the 'New Folder'. So click on the File menu => Save As to save an Excel document under a different name, and the dialog box 'Save As' click on the button 'New Folder'. After you create a new folder name it as per your wish to enter into it and type the name of the workbook that is the name under which you want to save the Excel file.

Create a New Folder or Directory via the Open dialog box

If you want, you can create a new folder or directory via the dialog 'Open'. So when you open a new folder, click on the Open button on the Quick Access Toolbar, and then click on New folder and name the new folder. In the new folder, you can move the Excel file and open it in Excel 2013.
