Understand your Home (User) folder: Computer Literacy for Windows 10

It’s important to note that many of the folders and files on your computer are not for your use. They’re there for the operating system to run properly. In some cases, these files and folders are protected by the operating system so you’ll be unable to move, rename, or delete them. But there are files and folders you can move around if you know what you’re doing, but can also potentially damage your system if you don’t. That’s why your personal account on your computer includes a User folder. You user folder is the primary location for you to store and manage your personal files.
