I am new on Linux so I don't know if this is a normal behavior or not. I am reading a bit about how to manage users. The thing is that when I create a new user using the "adduser" command it creates the user and its corresponding home directory "/home/NewUser/" but I can't see anything inside this folder. I mean, there is no Desktop-Documents-Downloads-etc folders.

Why is this happening? Should not they be created automatically? So far, the only way I can see those folders is when I log in using the GUI so they are created automatically. Thank you in advance for your help.

ps: I am using CentOS relase
