Windows explorer libraries folder


B

I have a problem for which I have not been able to find an answer. The
Libraries System folder, and the Homegroup folder are now under Desktop in
the Navigation Pane. There is also a folder with my User name which is a
link to my user folder under Users. How do I get the Libraries folder back
to its original position? It used to be just below the Favortites folder.
Same for Homegroup. Actually all the special folders have moved under
desktop.

TIA

You have me fairly baffled matey. I assume that we are talking about
starting Windows Explorer from the accessories folder after clicking Start,
All Programs.

When I do that, the window on the left hand side of the screen has a star
and Favourites with inset subitems Desktop, downloads, Recent places,
datemodifed and then Libraries with four subitems Documents, Music,
Pictures, Videos, and then Homegroup with no subitems and lastly Computer
with a list of drives.

Are you saying that when you do that you see something different? And that
it has recently changed?

Of course I do not actually do that much because I have a desktop shortcut
for Windows Explorer set to start where I want it to start and if I don't
want to use that I have a Computer desktop icon which allows access to
everything.

I found the answer. I opened Windows Explorer, and clicked on Tools/Folder
Options. Under the General Tab in the Navigation Pane box is a check box
for Show all Folders. I unchecked it and the Navigation Pane is correctly
displayed. If ou look at it and check the box you will see what i was
seeing. Thanks for the response.

Well done. That is what Windows 7 is like: you can do just about
everything you want but it is not obvious how to do things.
