Unsalted v Salted Butter

I am attempting to be a better baker and cannot figure out why some cookie recipes call for unsalted butter, while others do not specify. I can tell a difference in the batches, but decided to just use shortening until I can figure out the difference. Can anyone explain the difference between the two butters and their affect on baked goods?
