Hi Jane

Lee was referring to the main folder aka directory.

MS have used the word directory for years and then decided in their
infinite wisdom to rename it to folder. This is because you put folders
into a filing cabinet. The concept of filing papers into a folder and then
into a drawer of a filing cabinet.

Because users are still using different versions of windoze we have to use
both names!

Hope that helps.

Best wishes,
