Chapter 13. Managing User Accounts > Making Your Files Private

Making Your Files Private

A default installation of Windows XP includes security settings that make all the files in your profile visible to anyone who logs on using a computer administrator account. As Figure 13-2 shows, the My Computer window that a computer administrator sees displays an icon for each user’s My Documents folder (conveniently identified with the user’s name). With the default settings, a computer administrator can open any of these folders and view, modify, or delete another user’s personal documents.

Figure 13-2. A user with an administrator account sees the My Documents folder of all users on your network.
