About Clip Organizer collections
Microsoft Clip Organizer classifies your media clips into four types of collections: My Collections and Office Collections, which always appear in the collection list, and two other collections that appear only under certain circumstances.
When you create your own collections, they are placed in My Collections by default. For example, you might instruct Clip Organizer to scan your hard disk for existing photographs. If Clip Organizer finds photos in folders on your hard disk, it will create new collections with names that match the existing folders on your drive. If clips are found in the root directory of the drive and thus have no folder associated with them, then Clip Organizer will add these clips to the Unclassified Clips folder. You can then move this content into a more appropriately named folder.
You can use the Favorites collection to store and easily find your favorite media files.
This collection holds clips shared by multiple users — for example, corporate clips that are common to your organization. Clips in this collection typically exist on a file server or common workstation. These types of collections only exist if your network administrator has created and exported a collection for use on a shared network device.
This collection allows you to search for media files provided by Microsoft content partners who provide clips online. This is where Partner Collections will appear, along with content from our Web site.
