    Question i think the nyquil has kicked in

    since i'm stranded here at home on a saturday night unable to go out, i figured i would make the best of my downtime and ask.....

    does anyone actually use the My Documents folder (or simply "Documents" for those running vista or w7) when organizing your files?

    Yes. My documents are in the documents folder. Pictures are in the pictures folder. Music is in the music folder.

    I don't use the documents folder or the pictures one, but I do for Music.

    I've always prefered to have my own folder structure, and since my OS disk is quite small, I prefer to keep all files on the second larger HD.

    I used to work at geek squad and many people do. Techy people would never touch it but the other 98% of them do.

    Windows Vista renamed them to "Documents", "Pictures", "Music"...

    Windows 7 renamed them again to "My Documents", "My Pictures", "My Music"...

    That the folders move with every new version of the OS probably annoys a lot of the techy types that notice those things.

    I prefer my own file structure, I never really much liked the default documents layout that Windows produces.
