It's hard to believe that in the early days of MS-DOS, before Windows was even thought of, there was no support for folders or directories on a disk. Every file was at the same level of the hierarchy, because there was no hierarchy!
Folders today allow you to organise your files very specifically, but navigating that folder structure can be tricky. Which is where a really neat utility called Direct Folders can help. Double-click on your desktop, or press the centre mouse button, and up pops a bookmarks menu which lets you navigate directly to any folder that you have added to the list.
It works on all recent versions of Windows, including 10, and is free for non-commercial use. It's a 3.6 MB download from http://www.codesector.com/directfolders and is malware-free according to VirusTotal. The download site is also rated as reputable by Web of Trust.
