how to reset nevigation pane?

HI all
I tried to add a new library called "User" in libraries, and I want to include my user's folders. and I added some user's folder from c:\users\, It worked find. then I tried to add "c:\Documents and Settings" in it.

as the win7 can't open this "Documents and Settings" directly, but I can include it in library. after that, it took some time to save the changes .
then it made a new root-level called desktop
it includes "libraries, homegroup, computer, network, controlpanel," and alll the content in my desktop.

how can I rest the nevigation pane to before?

Hello Guandai, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'm not sure if this is what you meant, but right click on a empty space in the navigation pane and uncheck the Show all folders to see if that is what you are wanting.

Hope this helps,

Shawn, that's excellent! Many thanks from me as well. That makes using shortcuts to my C through G partitions much more useful.
