Open your start menu, and right click on an empty space, then click properties.
Go to the tab that says start menu, and click customize:

Then, scroll and find libraries and check the box that says "show as a link".

I really hope I could help! Let me know if it works for you.

I just looked and didn't see Libraries listed, but My Documents is the same thing I think, so just check the box that says: show as link. Here's a picture:

Hmm, that's strange, I'll try to see if I can help. Do you know how they went missing? Or did it just disappear randomly?

Then I'd go with a system restore hoping it wasn't too long ago that you made changes to your system or installed any software

In fact,. did you just install any new software?

I have done a system restore to a week ago, if I go further back whole lot of stuff to re-install hope to avoid that if I can but will do as last resort. Thanks very much for your help tonight.

Hello Carl, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Unfortunately there is not a "Library" option for the dark right side of the Start Menu in it's customization settings. The only quick link for Libraries is the default pinned Windows Explorer icon on the taskbar.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
