Libraries Folder - Add or Remove from Navigation Pane

and

Libraries Desktop Icon - Add or Remove

and yes, it works fine.

I just came across this site with a reg file that can remove libraries and if needed restore them. More details at http://www.askvg.com/how-to-disable-libraries-feature-in-windows-7

This only removes libraries from the Navigation Pane, but not from the Save As menu. Anyone knows how to completely disable the feature?

Its not a disable, more a hide.
Download ShExView from NirSoft. Disable the "Library Folder Context Menu" entry.
While you're there download ShellMenuView as well.
Both very handy Utes. Both very small.
No PC should be without them.
