How to customize Windows 10 "6 Folders" in My Computer



Windows 10 is the latest version of Microsoft’s operating system, and it provides a new way of organizing and viewing files in the My Computer folder. By default, Windows 10 displays the six folders: Documents, Downloads, Music, Pictures, Videos, and Desktop. However, some users may want to customize these folders to better meet their needs.

The first step to customizing the six folders in My Computer is to open the folder. To do this, you can either click on the Start button and type “My Computer” in the search box or you can press the Windows key and “E” at the same time.

Once the folder is open, you can customize the six folders according to your preferences. You can rename each folder, change the icon, and add or remove additional folders.

To rename a folder, right-click on the folder you want to rename and select “Rename.” Type in the new name and press Enter.

To change the icon for a folder, right-click on the folder and select “Properties.” Select the “Customize” tab, then click “Change Icon.” Select the icon you want to use from the list of available icons and click “OK.”

To add or remove additional folders, click the “Organize” button on the toolbar and select “New Folder.” Enter a name for the folder and click “OK.” To delete a folder, right-click on the folder and select “Delete.”

These steps will help you customize the six folders in My Computer. However, you should also be aware that if you are using a shared computer, your changes will affect all users of the computer. Therefore, you should be careful when making changes to these folders.

Finally, it’s important to note that Windows 10 also provides an additional way of organizing and viewing files in My Computer. You can use the “Folders” view to group files and folders together. To access this view, click the “View” button on the toolbar and select “Folders.”

By following these steps, you can easily customize the six folders in My Computer to better meet your needs. With the Folders view, you can also organize and view your files in a more efficient manner.
