How Windows Is Organized

Windows XP is built so that multiple people can use the same computer. Normally, this would be a problem if every person could see all the files of every other person. It could also mean that when other people use the computer after you, any changes they've made to XP—for example, to the background or the screensaver to use—you will have to live with.

Windows XP, though, solves the problem of multiple users neatly. Every person gets his own account, with his own settings, and even his own special area set aside for files and folders. That way, when you change your XP settings, they stay that way until you change them. When someone else uses the computer with her account, the changes she makes only affect her.
