    Would you guys know of anyway to do exactly what the original post does but in script form? (at least for just the documents library) Need to reset it to default. I need to do this for a mass of PCs.

    Windows 7: Libraries - Restore Default

    Thank you, thank you, thank you to Shawn for posting his original message way back in 2008!!! I have been messing around with the libraries on my system for two days now, and they are finally back to the way I want them. Deleting the libraries and then restoring the default libraries worked like a charm. Such a simple fix I can't believe I didn't find it myself. Oh well, live and learn. Thanks again, Shawn!!!

    If anyone still hasn't got it fixed and it is possible that the computer at one point had a virus consider that the file type association for the library type got trashed. Follow the solution in Default File Type Associations - Restore for library-ms type. That worked for me

    Hell Gene,

    No worries. OPTION THREE includes that as well now. :)

    Hi guys,

    I've been looking quite a while now to find a solution to my "problem" and I have a feeling you guys can help me.
    So the situation is as follows:
    - I moved "MyDocuments", "My Pictures", etc. to a second partition
    - The second partition is encrypted
    - When Win7 boots up, I log in with my user account and then automatically the password is requested in order to mount the encrypted partition with my personal files
    - Now what happens is that the libraries are inconsistent, because it seems that Win7 updates the libraries BEFORE I mount the encrypted partition with my personal files. The result is that I do not see my folders in the libraries.
    - When I click on "Restore Default Libraries" after mounting the encrypted partition, the personal folders on the encrypted partition are added correctly to the libraries and everything is fine

    What I'd like to achieve is that the click on the "Restore default libraries" is done automatically via a script.
    I tried to use "SLUtil" but that just works on a correctly set up libraries. There's no "restore" functionality.

    Option 3 of the first post seems for me to got into the right direction, but rebooting after applying the reg-file is not an option.

    Do you guys have any idea how I could restore the default libraries via script?

    Hello LaUs3r,

    You might see if you may get lucky that restarting explorer or sign out and in of Windows may apply enough to fix you libraries, but usually a restart is required to fully apply.
