Re: Getting to Music, Photos & video files

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>

I have me as a named user shortcut on my desktop, and of course only I logged on as me can see that. However it goes in at the base of my folders and all the others come off of that as subfolders.

But none of this should matter. The point of Windows is to allow you to get to things like this very quickly not dependent on knowing where they are. In Windows 7, I can't discuss how Windows 10 is organized, if you open the start menu, then tab once, you are in a list. You can down arrow and find documents and music. You can also use first letter navigation and type d or m.

If the start menu isn't working properly, you may need to know where they are to open them using Windows Explorer. I don't know how many Windows 7 users know about this, and I also suspect that Windows 10 has a similar interface.

In Windows 7 at least, Favorites, Downloads, Documents, Music,
Pictures, Videos and some others are under the user account folder.

This was the case in earlier Windows versions but I think since Windows
7, Documents, Music, Pictures and Videos folders are stored in the
c:\Users\UserName folder where “Username” is the name of the Windows
account. These are also the default folders in the Libraries of the
same names, so if you configure File Explorer to “Library view”, they
appear in the list when you press Windows+e, so are easily accessible.

Did you try pressing the Windows key and then typing “my music”? It
should be under documents and then music. Famous last words.

Hi, everyone,

I do not know why but for some weird reason I cannot find my music file
folder. I do not know if it is something in NVDA or not. When I do a
search for music and hit enter, all it shows is groove music but nothing
else. This did not happen in earlier versions of windows. I called the
Microsoft disability line and they could not fix the problem either. Why
is this happening?

Thanks for your help in advance.
