Picture folder in my documents folder.

Hi,I have a desktop & Laptop both running windows 7.Now the desktop when I open my documents from the start method I have a folder in there ''Pictures''If I open this up its my pictures all's fine.
Now on the laptop I open my documents in the same way but there is no ''picture'' folder there.
So which is correct,If the laptop is the correct way how do I move this ''picture folder'' from my documents on the desktop.
Question Which is correct desktop or laptop setup?

Many thanks.

Update.When I click start > my computer > right click documents > properties > it shows up as 'My Pictures not My Documents'

Just rename it to my pictures make that your picture folder and rename the picture folder to documents. If they are out of place you can drag and drop as you please onto the favorites bar

docs, pics, my music and so on are usually found in your users folder by default, clicking the username at the top right of the start menu will take you there
