    I"m pretty new to Windows XP having come from an IMac and I need advice on my computers folders setup.When I open up my Windows Explorer the icons I see are Desktop,My computer, my network places, the recycle bin and unused desktop shortcuts.My documents icon when I open it shows folders of all the files I have created. When I open up "My computer" icon it show my drives etc and it also shows a folder I created that I named "budlous documents" which when opened shows exactly the same folders in it that I have in the "My documents" folder. Have I somehow duplicated all my folders ? If so which one would be the correct folder to keep ?

    No, they point to the same place on your hard drive.

    If you right click "My Documents" on the desktop and click on properties, you will see the mapped location of the icon--what you have done, is found out how to get to the same place two different ways.
