Working with Personal Folders

Windows 7 comes with a personal folder that stores your most frequently used folders in one location. The personal folder appears on the Start menu with the name of the person logged on to the computer. The personal folder only contains files and folders associated with a user account and are unique for each user on the computer. The personal folder includes a variety of folders: Contacts, Desktop, Downloads, Favorites, Links, My Documents, My Pictures, My Music, My Videos, Saved Games, and Searches. You can access these folders using the personal folder on the Start menu. The My Documents, My Pictures, My Music, and My Videos folders are included in the Documents, Pictures, Music, and Videos libraries (New!) respectively, so you can also access them by name on the Start menu.
