Windows 7: Way to get the other computer's media library to show up again?

Way to get the other computer's media library to show up again?

I hope someone can help me with what may seem like a stupid problem. Accidentally removed a computer from WMP's "Other libraries" and I see no way of getting it back. Is there a way to get the other computer's media library to show up again, short of resetting WMP to default?

Before posting this, I tried the following:

- turned media streaming off and then on again.
- Restarted the computer
- restored media library, but this only rebuilt the media database of the local computer.

I could still see the other computer's library in Network, but there is no option to add it back. I've run out of ideas. Please help.

Desperately yours...

Sorry for losing my marbles early on, but I was able to get the other comp's library to show by re-enabling it under Library > Customize Navigation Pane > Other Libraries and putting a check to the other computer's library. Whew.

Doesn't it make one wish things could be done simpler?
