is it possible to disable Libaries COMPLETELY ?

I am quite happy using Windows Seven, but i would like it much better if i didnt have the LIBRARY facility, is it possible to dispose of this new idea, i prefer how things were without it !.

It always seems to me i havent got the correct folders in the Library that i have got stuff in, and i have to open more folders than i need to find what i am looking for, unless of course i could get the whole contents of "MY Documents" to be shown in its entirerity where the Library folder is displayed. ???

I dont understand it i suppose, me being an old un as well probably doesnt help.

Here may be a good start for what you need:

Libraries Folder - Add or Remove from Navigation Pane

thanks buddy, i have done that, and of course it worked a treat thanks.

NOW of course in the Left most pane I have the Contents of My Computer, being a list of the drives i have, with Favorites at the top (which i dont seem to be able to do anything with) but what i would like now, in the space where the Libary Contents was listed before, i would like to see my USER's folder which is named TIM

is this possible please.

a minute or two Later:- I think i have cracked it, I right clicked on "TIM" on the address bar, and selected "copy adress" and then created a new shortcut on my desktop and pasted the address into it and hey presto i have more or less got what i was after, and no Library in sight, and a list of my folders in my User's folder, GR8
