Tags vs Graph vs File Explorer vs Star

Hi! New user here. I’m trying to figure out how I should organize my notes. I’m used to following a hierarchical folder organization, but now that I have the graph view that seems redundant? It also takes more time since every time I create a new note I have to move it to the appropriate place. But there is also the concept of tags!

So firstly I’m really just trying to understand if people use or organize their notes in folders too or not really?

It’s very personal, but me mostly not

I don’t, I haven’t felt the need for folders. I think folders are fine though, sometimes I look at a group of notes that would make sense to be put in a folder, but since I have a Map of Content, I don’t really need the folder for grouping.
