Windows 7: Two questions

31 Jan 2009   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
Two questions

Hey guys,

1- Is the users folder shared by default in windows 7?

2- I added folders to the libararies and I removed the videos and pictures ones and then added them again and now they don't show when I open Windows Media Player although they are added in the video/pictures library under Windows Explorer.

Thanks for the help.

Hello BoxterDuke,

Only the C:\Users\Public folders are shared by default between user accounts.

When you added the libraries that you removed, did you do so by this method below?

Libraries - Restore Default

Hope this helps,

Hey Shawn, thanks for the reply. Before seeing this message I eneded up dragging the pictures and video folders into Windows Media Player and had them added that way.

I tried so many things before that I even created another user account and the pictures and video folders did not get added to Media Player. They get added to the libraries but not to Media Player.

Might be a bug in Win 7 or I don't know.

I thought about reinstalling just to see if that helps. Hehe
