Windows 7: Libraries?

Libraries?

I accidentally deleted my libraries and don't know how to get them back. The recycle bin is empty so there not in there. I still see libraries in the explorer window, its just that there's nothing in that folder (documents, music, etc.). How do I get the libraries back???

Did you delete the libraries including the folders?

No. I don't know how they got deleted -- they just did. I still see libraries in windows explorer but there is nothing in that folder. If possible, I would like to get the library back and not just add folders that don't function as they use to. (sorry if thats confusing).

That is confusing. So you still have what I show in the picture (except my Atemp) and the folders are gone.???

Right click on e.g. Documents and go to Properties. Do you see something like the pic - or what do you see ??

Take a snip of the left pane where it says libraries (like the pic below) and attach it to your post with the paper clip on the top right of the reply window. Do not forget Upload (takes a couple of seconds).

Another thought, just double click on where it says Libraries in the left pane - what happens? I think you just hid them.
