Windows 7: Missing the word DOCUMENTS on my desktop

Missing the word DOCUMENTS on my desktop

I recently did a HP system restore and during the process of restoring the information to my computer from the backup discs using 7zip, the word DOCUMENTS that has always been just below the word LIBRARIES in the left hand Navigation pane disappeared and I can't get it back. If I go to START , right lick DOCUMENTS and SEND TO DESKTOP all I can do is get a shortcut on my desktop.

Welcome to the forum. What sort of restore did you do and what are backup disks when were they made and how. If it's a full factory reset it formats the drive so everything is deleted

Are Libraries being shown in the navigation pane, if so click on Libraries & see if Documents are shown, if not, click on the Start Button & select Computer, then Open the C drive, then select Users, then select the folder that is applicable to you or your user name, Scroll down to My Documents, right click on it & select Include in Library & click on Documents.
