How do I fix this mess -- libraries folder, user folder, administra...

...tor folder, and public folder?

I only need one! I want the Administrator folder as my main folder.

The libraries folder has nothing from my Administrator folder, the Public folder is redundant and useless, and my user folder is empty.

I want my Administrator folder to be my libraries folder (systeam folder).

Why is my Administrator folder in the Network submenu?



I did enable the Windows 7 Administrator account, switched, and deleted the user account I was forced to create when first running my laptop.

The problem here is your lack of understanding of how the folders and libraries work. None of the folders you have mentioned are "redundant" or "useless." I assure you they have a purpose.

It is NEVER advisable to have only one account on a system, and especially not just THE Administrator account. If you forget a password, or a profile becomes corrupt, you MUST have another account to log into to correct the problem. Not to mention that the Administrator account has abilities that you simply do not need in the course of daily use of your system....even if you think otherwise .

I suggest you undo the changes you have made and read up on how the folders and libraries work, along with proper uses for User Accounts, and then revisit your setup options.
