My Documents

In Windows, prior to Vista, My Documents was the default personal folder for storing data. My Music, My Pictures and other subfolders were located under My Documents.

In Windows Vista, the names of the folders were changed to "Documents," "Music" and "Pictures," but Music and Pictures were no longer subfolders; they resided on the same level as the Documents folder. In Windows 7, the Documents folder organization changed once again (see Windows Libraries).

My Documents is a desktop folder that provides you with a convenient place to store documents, graphics or other files that you want to access quickly.
When you save a file in a program such as Word or Excel, or when you save Web documents from Internet Explorer to your computer, the file or document is automatically saved in My Documents unless you choose a different location.
