The first step in creating a new folder is to open Windows Explorer. You can open Windows Explorer in several ways.
Using the "Windows Key" and "E" key shortcut will bring up a window similar to the one on the left.
You'll notice a left side and a right side to this window.

The folder was created on "Local Disk (C:)".
The folder is ready for use.
