I have been a computer user for a very long time. My mom, who was in the computer business, bought my first laptop at age nine when I was six. My friends and I bought a second one when we were in our early teenage years. My third laptop was when I was in my early twenties.
Like most of us, I first encountered computers when I was just a child. My mom was a coder, and she always had a computer on her desk, which was her office. She also had a really old computer that came with software that made it really useful for working on the computer. My best friend and I used it all the time. We had it set up in our bedroom so we could see where we were at any given time.
At school I was always the one who had the computer, and there was always a folder on it. The folder was called “data”. Everything in the computer was stored in that folder. I think I was the only one who couldn’t figure out what the folder meant, but I was the one who learned what it meant.
I had a folder with my computer files.
I know what you mean. I have a folder named data on my computer. The folder is called data. In this folder I have all my photos, videos, documents, whatever. I have it set up so that I can see the folder anytime I can log in. I have it set so that I can open the folder anytime I can log in. I have it set so that I can open any of the files that are in the folder anytime I can log in.
This is my third week, so I have a pretty good grasp of what folder means and I think it’s actually very helpful. I know that it’s like a personal folder, but it’s not just a name for the folder. It’s a way to remember files; I know that if I start to do things on my computer that I’m going to come across a folder like this one. The same goes for all the other folders I have.
The folder is a personal folder, basically, but it’s also a way to hold up to five or six files at one time. If you go to the folder and click on the file, it copies the file to the folder and then automatically puts the folder in your “start” folder. This is a great way to organize files, because you don’t need to open every file every time you open a new document.
As I like to say, it takes a lot to get your computer to do this, but you know once you get it, its pretty awesome. For example, I have a project that I’m writing in a folder that is a file, and all the files in that folder are a file. That means the folder is a file as well.
The funny thing is, I always thought every folder was a file. In reality though, all folders are file, meaning they contain information and don’t contain a file per se. For instance, I could have a folder named folderA, a file named fileA, and a folder named folderB, a file named fileB, and a folder named folderC, a file named folderC, and a file named fileF.
To give you an example, consider folders and files. A folder contains a file. A file contains information. And the information can be data or code. Both of these things. So yes, folders contain files too, and that’s how I feel about folders. So for instance, you can have folders named “folder A” and “folder B” and “folder C”, and a file named “file A”. A file is a piece of information.
