If you’re an experimented user of computers, you may already know the benefits of creating folders in your computer, but for those who are still new you should know that if you want your files to be organized, the best way to do so is by folders, specially if you want to find your files quickly and you forget where you let them. The same comes with mails, especially if you’re not as tidy as you may want and all the mails end up in the Inbox.
Of course, if you’re not the type of user who receives tons of message it won’t probably make a difference when creating folders, you may even not need it, but for those who have jobs that requires partners to send you emails, creating folders will be something more than just important, maybe finding a certain mail with important information will be crucial for you to keep your job and not get fired. Creating folders is easy on computers, and it’s surely easy to do in Hotmail too. You must first log-in to your Hotmail account to do so, and once you’re done with that, head to your Inbox.
Now you can see your mails, and on the left you’ll be able to spot a bar with many “default folders”, such as “Junk”, “Drafts” and “Deleted”. All of those are under and option called “Folders”, and if you click on the gear that is next to the word, more options will pop-up. Those three options will help you to manage your folders, but to create a new one you must click on “Add a new folder”. A new page will load, and now you’ll be able to enter your folders’ name and where to send it (you can create folders inside others folders). Once you’re done, click on “save” and you’ll have your new folder ready to be used.
Now that you know how to keep your Inbox tidy and smart, you’ll be able to organize your mails in an easier way, and find them even easier. Remember that Hotmail has many tools for you to use, make use of every single one if possible.
