I got my laptop from rent a center April 2021. There are saved files on it from 2019. How could this be??

They probably did not re-install Windows after each rental. Check the system date and time, it maybe not accurate.

I had to set the time when I first got it because it was wrong. Why would re-installing windows matter? I'm sorry I'm not computer savvy

Usually after renting out a computer, it is unknown what the renter did to it, how he configured it, what extra programs he installed, what malware he got infected with. So the safest thing to do after each rental is to re-install Windows.

Did you also have to set the correct date? If so, the clock battery may be dying. So if the previous renter did not set it to the correct date, then those file dates that you found may not be correct.
