Folders are a way to organize your chapters, scenes, and so on, within Scrivener. They function basically the same as folders on your computer desktop do, and the way folders in real life do. You stick documents in them!

Creating New Folders

Click next to the green plus sign at the top of your Scrivener window, and you'll get this dropdown menu. Select New Folder and boom! You'll get a new folder!

Make sure you're selected to a place in the Binder where you want the new folder to go.
