Win 7 64 bit downloads library gone?

I moved a file from downloads to Documents by clicking (send to) then I noticed the Downloads file was missing? I ran sfc/scannow which found corrupted files and repaired them but after a restart the Download library was still missing.Ive tried some other things but cant remember exactly what. Any ideas I could try to fix this?

Have you tried opening windows explorer, right clicking Libraries (on the left), and clicking on Restore Default Libraries?

Exactly where was this Downloads folder? Was it in this directory: Users [acct name]
I think you can make New Folder in there, and rename it Downloads
If you successfully moved a file from Downloads to Documents, perhaps that Downloads folder is in there.
I remembered that there are two Documents location, one just under Libraries, and one under [acct name].
I'm hoping to remember where I saw a thread similar to this one...will post back if I find it, and if it has a solution.
