In legacy versions of Windows based operating systems like Windows 98 and Windows 2000 Briefcase was the feature that was by default installed during the installation of the operating system. Briefcase was a container that was used to store frequently used files so that users can have instantaneous access to them. Also Briefcase was used to synchronize the computers with other similar devices so that the files can still be easily accessed even through the network. Windows 7 also offers this feature but by default it is disabled. However users can create multiple briefcases so that they can store their important and frequently used files and can also segregate them accordingly. Creation of briefcases in Windows 7 is a simple process and even standard users can create them and no elevated privileges are required to do so. As a Windows 7 user if you want to create a briefcase you need to follow the steps given as below:

  1. Logon to Windows 7 computer with any account on which you want to create briefcase.

  2. Right click anywhere on the desktop and from the context menu point to New.

  3. From the appeared submenu click on Briefcase and specify the name of the newly created Briefcaseas required and appropriate.
