Windows 7: Messed Up Locations of tree pane in Computer

Messed Up Locations of tree pane in Computer

Good day Ladies and Gentlemen,
Possibly you can assist in an issue I created by carelessness. On Computer Display I had at the top Favorites \ Downloads \ Something Else. This is from a fairly new installation Windows 7 Ultimate 64- Bit. What ever was at the top of the right tree pane was the way it installed. Well I somehow deleted Download and the next lower item. I don't remember what it was as I have not yet used it. There was a space and then Libraries.
I wish to get it back to the way it was originally installed. I just made a Downloads New Folder and put it there and it did not work correctly. Can any please assist?
Thanks for any assistance.

Hi glennc and Welcome,

If you navigate to your Downloads location you can drag and drop the folder into the side Menu.
I've attached a screen print of mine to check that we're on the same page here. My only Customization is my Resources Drive. In case I'm not understanding you, please post a screen print.

EDIT: The default download location is %userprofile%\Downloads You can just past that into your Address Bar and press ENTER to check that it exists.

Hello TimStitt,
Thank you for your response. You nailed the Downloads. Fantastic and back up.
Might I ask how to do the same thing for the next icon "Recent Places". I tried the same method and it said I don't have access. As I am the sole user/administrator of the computer I thought I would have access. Any ideas?

You're welcome glennc, I'm glad it worked.

To fix a missing "Recent Places" right click on 'Favorites" and select "Restore favourite links". this one is not really a shortcut it's a hard coded programme link that pretends to be a shortcut.
