The new folder is being put into the "Default save location". You can find out which folder this is by clicking on the link above that says "# locations".

Or, back out of the Documents library and then right-click the Documents library itself and choose Properties.

Sorry I don't understand "# Locations" can't find it. Also right-clicked on properties and then what do I look for.

You're looking for the folder that is the "Default save location".

The thing I was talking about before is located at the top of the folder. It's a blue text link telling you how many locations are included in the library that you are in.

Start Orb and type in New Folder. If their is one it should you. If it is there right click and select Open File Location.

Start Orb means "Start Menu".

Look inside of My Documents for the New Folder.
