I almost can't believe I am writing this. We hired an internal
candidate into a tech writer position. I am trying to mentor/train
her. We'll be dealing with Word documents on Windows machines.

I want her to set up a folder structure to manage the files she'll be
handling. I suggest Windows Explorer as the "right tool" for doing so.
Instead, she wants to keep everything on her desktop and use a
software called "Fences" to manage everything.

I think this is a really bad idea. Am I wrong?

I try to be easygoing and offer "suggestions" rather than dictate
things, but am losing patience.
