Documents Library Question

Hey,

well me being the idiot I am I decided it would be a good idea to change the locations that are included in the Documents library so I completely changed the view.

The default locations are

Code:
C:\Users\Public\Documents
C:\Users\YOURUSERACCCOUNT\Documents
I changed that so I would have more libraries so this is what I got, and I'd like to know how I get it back to what it used to look like (see below)

Hi and welcome

there are a couple of ways. do you have the win 7 dvd?
If you have a backup to restore is the easiest, then a repair install, then if nec. a re-install.

Im sure there is a way to simply move them back but I dont know it. someone probably does.

Hope this helps
