My Pictures, My Music, My Videos are still there. Microsoft realized that prefacing everything with “My” was annoying, so they removed the prefix.
They also moved the folders to a different place. Instead of being with My Documents (er, just Documents now), they’ve been promoted up one level, to the same level as Documents. Well, all you need to know is that they’re directly on your Start menu.Â Just click Start, and then click the folder in the upper-right corner of your Start menu. Except for Videos. For Videos, you’ll need to click Start, click your username, and then double-click Videos in the Explorer window that opens.

With Vista, Microsoft did their best to shorten folder paths. Instead of storing user profile files under C:Documents and Settingsusername, they’re now in C:Usersusername. Your familiar folders are now stored at:
- My Documents = C:UsersusernameDocuments
- My Pictures = C:UsersusernamePictures
- My Music = C:UsersusernameMusic
- My Videos = C:UsersusernameVideos
