Add a folder

Solved! Go to Solution.

How do we add a folder to a repository?   I have searched and searched and I see an icon for a new file, but nothing anywhere for a new folder.  Nor did I find the question asked anywhere here on the forum, which I find quite weird.

Re: Add a folder

Hello @mbrasseau,


To create a new folder in a repository click "create a new file." Type your new folder's name in the area where you would write the file name, and at the end of the file name type a "/" to initilize it as a folder. After this you can create a new file in the folder.



Alternatively, you can clone the repo locally and add a new folder, and then push the changes to github using the command line or Github Desktop.
