To create a new folder in Ubuntu, you can use the command line or the graphical user interface.


Method 1: Using the Command Line

  1. Open the terminal by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T.
  2. Navigate to the directory where you want to create the folder using the cd command. For example, if you want to create a new folder in the Documents directory, type cd Documents and press Enter.
  3. To create a new folder, use the mkdir command followed by the name of the folder you want to create. For example, to create a folder named "new_folder", type mkdir new_folder and press Enter.


Method 2: Using the Graphical User Interface

  1. Open the file manager by clicking on the Files icon in the launcher or by pressing the Super key (Windows key) and typing "Files".
  2. Navigate to the directory where you want to create the folder.
  3. Right-click on an empty area in the file manager window and select "New Folder" from the context menu.
  4. Type a name for the new folder and press Enter.


Your new folder should now be created in the directory you specified.
