How and When to Use the 📂 Open File Folder Emoji

  • Folders are some of the best ways of organizing especially in a work setting. However, you could extend 📂 even to the personal sphere. Like, “Don’t throw around important stuff like that! Keep all your certificates together 📂”.
  • An open folder could signify a sense of openness; transparency with officiality. So, if you’re indicating that a profession, investment, or any such professional aspect is an open book or rather an open folder, you can use 📂.
  • Examples for the previous point: “There’s nothing we hide between the employees and the managers in here 📂” or “That place is opaque even between the workers! 📂”.
  • 📂 may also indicate that the folder is opened or about to be filled. For instance, “Just going through your documents 📂” or “I’m all set to put better things into my portfolio! 📂”.
