By folder do you mean a group for your layers (which acts much like a folder)? There are a couple ways to do this. With the Layers panel is open (Window > Layers), click the folder icon at the bottom of the panel. This will create a new group above the currently selected layer. Alternatively, you can go to Layer > New > Group. More detailed instructions are here: Create and manage layers and groups in Adobe Photoshop
