Jyoti: I have another example. For our picnic we placed all our food 
items in one box and games in another box. The boxes are like folders 
and the contents are like files. 
Tejas: We enjoyed the picnic as everything was organized. 
Jyoti: We also labeled all the boxes, so we were able to find these 
items easily.
Moz: Good. Similarly on a computer, files are used to store songs, 
pictures, etc. Files can be organized and saved in different folders. 
Jyoti: Can I create a new folder and keep my files in it?
Moz: Yes, you can. First create a new folder and name it. The name 
should indicate what type of files we want to keep in the folder.
Tejas: I know we can use the mouse to create a folder, but how?
Files are used to store songs, pictures, etc.
Folders help us by:
     Allowing us to keep related files together.
     Making it easy to locate important files quickly.
Creating a folder
   1. Move the mouse pointer to an empty space on the desktop.
    2. Right click (click once on the right button of the mouse).
    3. Select the option ‘Create Folder?.
    4. Enter a name for the folder.
