Task 2: Opening the My Documents Folder
To help you keep your documents organized, Windows sets up a special folder called My Documents. You can view the contents using the My Documents command. When you organize your own documents, it's a good idea to use the My Documents folder, creating subfolders (a folder within a folder) within this main folder to store your work.
You can add folders to the My Documents folder. To do so, see Task 10, "Creating a New Folder."
If you have added the My Documents icon to your desktop, you can double-click this icon to open this folder. See Part 10 for information on customizing the desktop.
