My Documents

The My Documents folder is a central location on your hard disk where the documents for all of your applications are supposed to be stored. Although you can store documents anywhere, the My Documents folder is convenient because it is easily accessible from the Desktop and the Start menu and is the default folder in many File Open and File Save dialog boxes. Each user has his/her own My Documents folder, located at \Documents and Settings\{username}\Documents.
