Windows 7: How do I restore the set up to My Documents?

How do I restore the set up to My Documents?

I was transferring files from my Hard Drive, and I ended up screwing up My Documents layout. It showed public files at first and after a bit of Googling, I ended up deleted a few things and have probably made it worse. Here's a screenshot of what it looks like:



It normally doesn't display the C:\Users\Owner subtitle and the locations are normally at 2. Anyone know how I can fix this?

Thanks.

Hello Obsessive

It looks like you have just deleted some folders from your documents library that's all.Have a look at this- Library - Include a Folder. It should put you back on track.

Danny

Edit - Looking closer at your screenshot are your libraries still there.If not this will set them back to default- Libraries - Restore Default

Hi Danny, thank you for your response. I did do as you suggested in your edit, but the layout still looks the same. The "includes locations" changed to 2 however.

All my libraries look like yours with the location shown as well only mine have been moved to a different partition so are labelled as D:\
