Creating New Files and Folders

When accessing OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Document libraries, you are able to create new documents using Office 365 that will be stored in your OneDrive or Document library. It is not necessary to save the online version of these files, since all changes are saved automatically.

Create a new file 

  1. Open OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Document library in your browser of choice.
  2. Click +New and select the type of file you need to create. [see screenshot]
  3. Online files are automatically saved as you work on them. See the Office 365 pages for help in using the Office 365 software.
  4. To rename the file, click the default name and type a new one. [see screenshot]

Create a new folder 

  1. Open OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Document library in your browser of choice.
