Hi, well I am not sure as to what folder you want to open i will give you all i know. 1. if you are working on a project under one folder then go to file -> open... and open that folder then all folders and files will be available on the side bar of sublime text. 2. Once all your project files are on the sidebar you can right click on either the main folder that you opened or folders within the main folder and the option to create a new folder will be there 3. if you want to make a new project in a file then i think you first need to create a new folder in finder at the exact location then save your new file in that folder. Let me know if this helps.

Please be sure to make the next questions as specific as possible so that it can be easier to understand the question and help you faster and believe me there are no stupid questions in code.

Thank you Jeffrey I'll try to be more specific. I want to make a new simple static website.I want to add html and css files for structure and style. I’m having some troubles to understand how to organize all the files and folders that I want to create.

ok in that case then what i usually do is create them directly in finder make one root folder which i like to name the name of the website then create a folder named css one named js (for javascript) one called img for images one called inc for include files then in sublime text go to file -> open.. and open the root folder and all other folders will be listed there as well.

Thank you so much Jeffrey.
