Windows 7: What is this called and how do I change it?

09 Jul 2015   #1

Win 7 Pro 64bit, v.6.1 build 7601, sp1
What is this called and how do I change it?

Hi. Ok, so this is a kind of ridiculous request by one of my users. It should not matter, but of course, it matters to her.

See the screenshot of the Save As dialog box. Along the top, where the drop-down is for the location to save it to, her drop-down shows two different locations which must be cached somewhere. The folders do not actually exist. One is her F drive, which was a thumbdrive. So, how / where is this info stored and how can I delete it?

Thanks in advance.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

See the "Includes: 2 locations" just below the large font "Documents library" in the right top pane?

Click the 2 locations bit, and see if that's what you want.

You get a similar but different window if you right click and properties the documents library in left pane.

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
The public listings are for sharing files with other user accounts on the same machine.
Libraries - Personal and Public User Folders

On the bottom of that tutorial are follow up tutorials if you want to remove libraries all together

Hi no problem :)
Public area can be confusing and irritating if the same files/ folders are in both places
But can be very handy if other user accounts are on a single machine which is pretty common
