“Your” vs “My” in user interfaces
For example, the pictures folder on windows is called "my pictures", but an app might say "are you sure you'd like to delete that"? Even other times, buttons say "Delete my file.", as though it's the user saying it. Yet at other points in time the app might say "should I delete this" as if it's talking to you.
So, when is it appropriate to use each POV? Which one is the most usable?
