Folders and Directories.

Top  Previous  Next

Folders are a way in which Windows subdivides disk space into separate spaces. They are used to keep files separate from one and other and they are also used to help organize information and programs. Folders can be nested inside each other and this allows you to create hierarchical organizations. The term Folder and Directory are interchangeable. The word Directory originated in the DOS environment and the word Folder originates in Windows.
