Windows 7: Accidentally deleted the libraries folder on taskbar.

Accidentally deleted the libraries folder on taskbar.

Ok, so my idiot brother thinks he's a computer bada** and done things fast(like using keyboard shortcuts, fast mouse movements, etc). Then due to his idiocy, he accidentally deleted my libraries folder(that was default on windows 7) on the taskbar. I tried typing libraries in the start menu and tried to pin it to the taskbar, but there wasn't any option to pin it to the taskbar(only pin to win explorer). How can I pin it back? Any help would be appreciated.

Try:
1) Start Menu/All Programs/Accessories
2) Right click on Explorer
3) Choose 'Pin to Taskbar'

Once pinned, click on it. It should open to Libraries.

If all else fails, do a System Restore pre-dating the problem.

...or hit the windows key on the keyboard, type explorer, then right-click on the icon shown below and 'pin to taskbar'

Windows doesn't put a libraries folder on the task bar by default. If you had one there, someone pinned it there. Like all icons on the task bar, they are pinned shortcuts. Your libraries folder hasn't gone anywhere, someone just unpinned it. BTW, can you actually pin a library the the task bar?

you can pin explorer, which will open to the libraries top folder (which is what i assumed the OP meant).

You are right. I just looked. I never realized it was Explorer.
I just used it.

That is what Vaynard meant I'm sure.

In the Start Search bar type Explorer.
Windows Explorer will show. Right click.
About half way down will be option Pin to Taskbar. Left click.
Done.
