Files and Folders

Each piece of work, or file, can be stored in a folder. Windows XP makes it easy to store files in the places that make the most sense. Place text, image, and music files in the folders titled My Documents, My Pictures, and My Music. Those folders are all easy to find on the right side of the Start menu, and they offer convenient links to the tasks you'll perform most often.
