When you have WordPress installed do you really want all those wp- files in the root directory? No! But do you need them there? I used to think so, otherwise why would it come that way? But you can move those files so they’re out of the way!
With a few easy changes, you can take all the files to never edit and get them out of the way, then bring your content folder to the fore.
Pros: easy to navigate, security via non-default, pleasant to look at
Cons: some plugins will either not work, or need to be edited (default paths hard-coded rather than using global variables)
