Left Click ONCE on a blank area of your compy screen. Now RIGHT CLICK and select "New" and then "Folder". I named my folder " My Instructables" to distinguish it from everything else.

Step 2: Create The Sub-folders

Now create your sub-folders. these are where you will store your Ibles photos. Name them according to your individual Ibles.ie: how to creat a folder, Make a .BAT file, MSFT Word Simplified, etc.

Step 3: Organize Photos
