Take a trip back to 1990. The Windows 8 My Documents folder has a Fax sub-folder.

Younger readers, ask your parents about faxes.

Since I haven’t sent or received a fax in 15 years, I can only assume the folder was automatically installed by Windows. I’ve installed a fresh OS so it isn’t something previously hidden that Windows helpfully dragged up from the vaults.

I don’t remember seeing it before so my guess is the folder was added when I used the Windows Fax and Scan software to scan some paper documents.

Which brings me to my next question: why does Windows 8 have Fax software at all? There’s an argument for legacy stuff on a PC. This is ridiculous.
