    I have an iMac, running Mac OS 10.10. How do I go about cleaning out my Document Folder. Probably a simple process, but I'm having a difficult time figuring it out. Any help would be much appreciated.

    I think I'm misunderstanding your question. Are you asking for ideas on the best way to organize your documents in folders?

    Organize documents by subject/date/project etc, and create folders. Then drag and drop the documents into those folders the same way you would you organize the same documents in a physical file cabinet.

    Cleaning "UP" is the operative word I should have used and I equate that to
    organizing the document folder. Thanks for the replies.

    Ok. My suggestion is to place things inside folders and label the folders in a way that makes sense to you. Just like file folders in a file cabinet. You can also make folders within a folder to further organize from there. (Highly recommended if you have more than 5-10 things in a folder.)

    As you organize, don't be afraid to make changes as new needs arise. It takes a little time at first, but once you get things organized, you'll be so thankful you put the effort into doing so.

    Hope this helps and best of luck,

    Organise how ever it makes sense to you. Create folders for project, or by year, or by some other kind of category. Without knowing anything about what is in your documents folder this is an impossible question to answer.
