Tips for Submitting Assignments to MyFolder:

It is probably best to always transfer your files to myfolder in one of the university computer labs. The MyFolder directory is "mapped" on your computer once you sign-in.


  1. Do not put your file(s) in another folder. They must be in a folder called "CartGIS" within the public_html folder on your myfolder site.

  2. If the file has images, remember to also transfer them to your public_html folder. If using Word, the folder of images will have the name of the file with a "_files" extension.
    It is not possible to rename the file or the folder outside of Word. To rename the file, you must open the file in Word and use "Save As..." to save the file with a different file name. The procedure will also create the corresponding file with the proper name for the pictures. Essentially, Word "marries" the HTML file with the folder of images. It is not possible to rename either the file or the folder outside of Word.

windowsWindows XP:

  1. Myfolder does not work with Firefox. Use Explorer.
  2. Go to and enter your UNO NetID Username and your UNO NetID Password.
  3. Click on the blue text to see your folders.
  4. Click on the "public_html" folder.
  5. Drag-and-drop your file(s) to a "Latin_America" folder within this folder.

  2. Click the Layout button (to the left of the Views button) as shown in the picture below
  3. Vista layout
