The Importance of Properly Naming Files

Posted by BlackSun Jake on December 23, 2015

When naming your files, it is important that they are given file names that accurately reflect their content. For example, naming a file ‘That one project’ is likely going to be confusing when you go to open it weeks or months down the road. Naming it ‘English Project – 110 – Why T.S. Eliot is One of the Greatest Writers of our Time’ is a far more apt name. This will allow you to easily locate whichever file you are looking for.

Similarly, it is important to organize your folders correctly. Instead of saving everything under ‘My Documents’, try creating folders and sub-folders with descriptive headings. This will save you time in the long run.
