Computers Lesson – Files and Folders

Slide1

• This lesson explains how to Create, Edit, Copy, Paste and Delete Folders.  It utilizes screen shots and instruction bubbles to clearly show how to do each step.  I created this lesson because I am amazed at how many students I teach are not able to perform these relatively simple steps at the beginning of the school year.  Saving into folders helps organize files so that they can quickly be retrieved at a later date.
