Where Are My Folders in Canva?

Last updated on September 28, 2022 @ 12:07 am

Canva is a user-friendly design tool that is beloved by bloggers and small business owners for its ability to help create professional designs without any design experience. But one of its most frustrating features for new users is its lack of intuitive organization. Where are my folders in Canva?

The first thing to understand about Canva is that unlike most design software, it does not use a layers system. This means that all of your design elements are placed on one single canvas. That can be helpful in some ways – it allows you to move things around easily and see everything that’s going on in your design at a glance.

But it also means that if you’re not careful, your canvas can quickly become a cluttered mess. That’s why it’s important to learn how to use Canva’s organizational features.


One way to keep your designs organized in Canva is to use folders. You can create a folder for each project you’re working on, or for different types of designs. For example, you could have a folder for Facebook covers and another folder for Twitter headers.

PRO TIP: If you are having trouble finding your folders in Canva, be sure to check your account settings. In the “My Folders” section, you can choose to show or hide folders. If you have hidden any folders, they will not appear in the main Canva interface.

To create a folder, click on the “+ New Folder” button at the top left corner of your screen. Enter a name for your folder and click “Create Folder”. Your new folder will appear in the left sidebar.

To add an existing design to a folder, click on the design and then click the “Move” button at the top of the screen. A menu will appear with all of your folders listed.

Select the appropriate folder and click “Move Here”. The design will be moved to that folder.


In conclusion, using folders in Canva is an easy way to keep your designs organized and tidy. By creating different folders for different projects or types of designs, you can easily find the designs you need when you need them.
