My Documents

Windows DocumentsNot to be confused with a written document, My Documents and Documents are Microsoft Windows folders that store computer documents and other files associated with programs on your computer. For example, when saving a file in Microsoft Word, the default folder is My Documents. Saving all of your personal files into the My Documents folder makes them easier to backup and locate.

Note: Microsoft has changed "My Documents" to "Documents" in the most recent versions of Windows.
