One part of working with Windows is learning how to work with the documents you save and store on your system. Each time you save a document (a letter, worksheet, database, or other document), that information is saved as a file on your hard disk. You assign both a specific place for the file and a name.
To keep your files organized, you can set up folders. If your hard drive is like a big filing cabinet then folders are like drawers. Each folder can hold files or other folders. You can open and close folders, view a folder's contents, copy and move folders, and create or delete folders. New with Windows XP is the Folders Tasks list, which helps you understand and access the common folder commands, as covered in this part.
