Windows 7: Documents Library

01 Feb 2011   #1

Windows 7 64 bit
Documents Library

Being a fairly new user to Windows 7, I managed to somehow delete/lose my original 'Documents' folder in the Library. When I finally recovered, the folder levels were not the same, and I ended up with the setup as shown on the attached. My question is this: can I eliminate one of the levels so I don't have to do so many clicks to get down to my folder where the actual documents are stored?

Unfortunately, I do not have a backup that will get me back to where I was before.

Also, how can I change the default save level? Curently, my files are saved at the top level 'Documents' folder.

Hello Lindaw, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It appears that you manually added a copy of your C:\Users\(user-name)\Documents folder into the Documents library instead of using the method in the tutorial below to include it. You should be able to delete the one you added, then include that folder instead to have it back to default.

Library - Include a Folder

Hope this helps,
