Create New Files And Folders

In your Box account, you can organize your files in folders just as you would on your computer.

 

  

To create a new file or folder:

  •  Click the New button in the upper-right corner of the page.

 

 

  • Choose what you would like to create. You can create a new FolderBookmark (to any URL), Box Note, Microsoft Office file, or Google document. The options shown here may differ based on the settings you or your account admin have enabled.
  • A pop-up window will appear prompting you to enter the name of your new file or folder. If you are creating a new folder, you'll also be prompted to invite 'collaborators' to the folder. If you do not invite any collaborators, the folder will remain private.
  • Click 'Okay' to complete the process.  
  • Note: Folder paths have a limit of 255 characters so keep folder and files names as concise as possible to avoid running up against this limit.
