Create the folder by hand, then point Origin to it.

The only thing worse than an obvious feature missing (obvious because all the competitors implement it), is a community manager pretending like this is somehow the first time they heard about it and it's some kind of original idea.

Can you confirm which missing feature you're referring to?

 

We do have a move & locate feature on Origin, but it might work a bit different than on other clients. If you'd like to find out how it works, check out this article:
