My Computer

My Computer

Well, I’m really going to be talking about your computer, but that’s besides the point! So, you know about the My Computer folder that we all use quite often, right? It’s the main folder that holds all of the different hard disk drives that we use for different things on our computer. For example, the C: drive, the A: drive (if you have a floppy disk drive) and all of those removable disk drives for flash drives, etc. They all sit right in the My Computer folder.

Okay, so now that we’ve established that, how can we actually get to it? Most of us have an icon for it sitting right on our desktop. This is a very easy way to access it, but what if you don’t want to use an icon for it? I know I like to keep my desktop as clear as possible so I can see my beautiful wallpaper better. If you’re like me, what can you do?

There just so happens to be another way to access the My Computer folder. All you have to do is go to your Start menu and look for it. When you click on Start, look to the left and you will see an option for My Computer. Just click on that and you will be able to choose the particular drive you want to go to right from there. This method actually saves you a little bit of clicking time and since we all use our Start menu for so many different things anyway, we might as well add one more to it, don’t you think?

You will see options for the My Documents, My Pictures, My Music and My Network Places in the list as well. Check it out for yourself and simplify your computer life just a little bit more!
