I don't know how I managed it, but I have completely disordered my Windows 7 directory structure. Whereas the default structure is to have the five distinct folders -- Favorites, Libraries, Homegroup, Computer, and Network -- I now have only two, Favorites and Desktop. Now, the Favorites consists of Libraries, Downloads, and Recent Places, with everything else contained under Desktop, including the true Desktop. In addition, there is now also a copy of the Control Panel. Maybe that's always been there, but I've never noticed it before. I normally would have to go to the Start Menu to access the Control Panel. Nothing catastrophic has happened yet, but I can't imagine there won't be consequences eventually.
Can I simply create new libraries, give them the appropriate names, move the true Desktop back to Favorites where it belongs, move everything else back to its appropriate folder, and delete the false Desktop? Or will any reorganization have to be done using system tools in order for the system to acknowledge the changes?
