Windows Documents

Not 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 your files into the My Documents folder makes them easier to backup and locate.


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