Chapter 3. Managing Files and Folders > Customizing Personal Folders

Customizing Personal Folders

In the My Documents folder, you can create your own folders and customize view options based on the contents. In the left pane of the My Pictures, My Music, and My Videos folders, Windows provides links to file management activities specifically related to the contents of the folder and other places on your computer, such as Print Pictures in the My Pictures folder, or Play All in the My Music or My Video folders. When you create a new folder, you can customize it for pictures, music, and videos by applying a folder template, which is a collection of folder task links and viewing options. When you apply a template to a folder, you apply specific features to the folder, such as specialized task links and viewing options for working with pictures, music, and videos.
