One of the building blocks of a computer operating system is Folders. Folders allow you to store files within them, and keep the desktop organized in the process. The macOS platform also features the Folders feature, and it helps keep related files together in one folder, rather than having them scattered across the desktop.
There is no restriction on what you can place in a folder, so basically, you can have movies and files in one folder, it does not matter. That’s why the folders option is not just popular but also has been a mainstay of PC operating systems since the very beginning.
Creating folders is quite possibly, the easiest thing you can do on macOS, but it is something you should know how to do, as it is one of those fundamental tasks.
