Nevermind Stu. That's not your issue. We had mistaken what you meant your issue was.

Danny's post above should be able to fix your library issue if that was the same method you originally used to remove libraries.

Stu,

We really need to know what method you used to remove it. If you do not know how you removed "Libraries" from the navigation pane in Windows Explorer, then you could also do a system restore using a restore point dated before "Libraries" went missing to undo and hopefully restore it.

Danny and Brink,

I really like to thank the both of you for taking the time to assist me. As to what I did to cause my problem, I do not know. I went for a system restore, it resolved my problem.

Thanks again for your time.

Removing Libraries from Windows Explorer
Hello! I've read the tutorials on hiding Libraries (and other folders) in W. Explorer. Is there a program that would edit the Windows registry and do that for me so that I don't have to do it manually? A little tweaking program? Thank you.

Folder Mount Points & Windows Libraries
I haven't reached my limit yet, but I'm down to a few unused drive letters, so I've been looking for a way to reorganize. I tried mounting my media drives in NTFS folders, which works OK, but is quite sub-optimal as you can't index them and thus cannot use them in the Libraries. You also can't run...
