I think you are talking about Windows and it's My Documents under a user's profile. By default, any application can access My Documents folder, just under profile folder in your name. So I am wondering why you can't access it? Commonly it can be seen at the left pane of your Windows Exlporer.

When I upgraded to Windows 10 on my computer I also kept my Windows 7 as a backup. I have been using Outlook as my Email provider. When I open outlook I get a list of my folders alongside my emails and can access them from there. I am now in Australia visiting family with my iPad and can open my emails but I don’t get the list of folders alongside as I do with my laptop computer. Can I access them somehow through Safari on my iPad?

Thanks for requesting remote assistance service. Please click HERE to start a remote desktop session with me.
