Chapter 5. Organizing Files and Folders > Exploring Your Computer

Exploring Your Computer

My Computer (Figure 5.1), a top-level folder, is the window to your computer’s data structure. From it you can open all the files, folders, and disks on your computer (or network), which are categorized as follows:

Files Stored on This Computer lists folders for everyone with a user account on this computer. You see your personal files and folders here. All users can see the community folder named Shared Documents. If you double-click another user’s folder that you don’t have permissions for, you’ll get an error message; see “Sharing Files” in Chapter 17.

Hard Disk Drives lists the hard drives installed on this computer.

Devices with Removable Storage lists floppy, CD, DVD, USB flash, tape, Zip, and other removable media.

Scanners and Cameras shows icons for connected digital cameras and scanners.
