Add and remove folders in Notes on Mac
You can create folders to organize your notes. You can also sort your notes within those folders.
Create a new folder
In the Notes app on your Mac, select a folder in the sidebar in the account where you want to create a new folder. If the sidebar isn’t showing, click the Sidebar button .
Choose File > New Folder, then name the folder.
To move notes into the new folder, select and drag them to the folder (Option-drag to copy them).
You can’t move notes to the “All [account]” folder. See About folders. If you move notes from other Internet accounts to your upgraded iCloud account, you can access all the same features in those notes.
Rename or move a folder
In the Notes app on your Mac, do any of the following:
Rename a folder: Control-click the folder, then choose Rename Folder.
Place a folder inside another folder: Drag the folder on top of the other folder.
Move a folder out from inside another folder: Drag the folder to the “All [account]” folder.
After being moved to the top level, the folder appears in the list sorted in alphabetical order.
Delete a folder
In the Notes app on your Mac, select the folder in the sidebar. If the sidebar isn’t showing, click the Sidebar button .
Click the Delete button or press Delete (or use the Touch Bar).
Notes in the folder you delete are moved to the Recently Deleted folder, where they remain for 30 days. You can view and recover notes you deleted in the last 30 days. After that, notes are permanently removed from all your devices set up with that account.
You can’t delete the “All [account],” Notes, or Recently Deleted folders, but you can delete notes in them. If you delete all the notes in the Recently Deleted folder, it disappears until you delete more notes. See Delete a note.
