In each case, you are opening a feature of Windows called "Windows Explorer". Windows Explorer allows you to see how all your files are arranged. It also allows you to add, rename, move and delete files and folders. We'll take a look at how to do that in the "Managing Files and Folders" section.

So, what is "My Documents"? Once you have your own individual login, it's the place that Windows will store your files. It's a big folder that holds a whole bunch of other folders and files. You'll be saving your work here.

You can also retreive your lesson files from here and turn in your work. We'll talk about how to do that in the "Navigating the Student Server" section.
