Windows 7: Videos Library gone wrong?

Videos Library gone wrong?

So basically my Videos library looks like this now, as I accidentaly deleted the original Videos folder from my personal folders, I now cant seem to get it back to look like it used to(without the drop collapsible bits).






How Do I get it to look like this again? (just with Videos and not Music)


I had to create the new videos folder as the old one was completely gone, not in users, or in the personal folder. Any help would be much appreciated.

Several, including Windows 7 x64 Ultimate
 
 

You can try a system restore to a point before you had the problems;

System Restore[2]=Backup%20Restore

Hello SoulPursuer,

You might see if doing the tutorial below to make sure that the default Libraries are restored first.

Libraries - Restore Default

Next, do the tutorial below to reset all folder view settings back to default to see if that may get it back for you afterwards.

Folder View Settings - Reset All to Default

Hope this helps,
Shawn

You need to go into the library and right click on an empty space. From the context menu select Group by->(none)
