    The folder is not in the right column and I went through the settings to show, disable, then show as link, etc. but i think my problem is that I havent tried you guys' remove_registry hack. I will give it a try and will report.

    The computer having this trouble is my bosses so I have to ask for when the computer is available.

    Have you already double checked to make sure that the C:\Users\(user-name)\My Documents folder is there, and that it is set at it's default location using the tutorial below?

    Many thanks

    I'm glad someone had a fix for that obnoxious libraries icon, Windows 7 is a pain in the posterior as it is trying to get accustomed to the new location of typical settings. You'd swear there's a group of people sitting around thinking of where to hide the control panels for their new OS.... It's still the same info, just tucked away differently... Its like we pay extra to play hide and seek.... oh well, icon gone! thanks man

    You're welcome Marglar, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    It's up to you, but you might consider giving Libraries a try though. It can be real helpful if you would like to be able to say access all of your music files in included folders in one place instead of having to go to each folder while still having the music only stored in their original locations. :)

    Why can't I download remove Libraries software?
    I just signed on to WDs 7 Forum.
    I have a problem with run-away Libraries icon siting in my taskbar which can not be reduced in its icon size.

    Windows 7 doesn't have Zip file, one needs to download 7-Zip or other feee zip/unzip softwares. You shouldn't assume everyone comes to Windows 7 is fully loaded as you guys.

    Now, please explain how to unzip and select .reg file and then, look for merge if one can not find it?

    Hello Presidio, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    You should not have a problem downloading anything from our site since you do not need to be a member to download anything. You might check to see if you have a security program that may be blocking it.

    However, the download in this tutorial will not affect anything on the taskbar. You might see this instead.

    Hope this helps,

    For your added comments:

    All editions of Windows 7 include a built in ZIP handler to open all ZIP file with. If your's is not working, then I would suggest using the ZIP download in this tutorial to restore the default ZIP associations in Windows 7. There is absolutely no need to have to use a 3rd party program to open ZIP file in any edition of Windows 7 unless you just want to.

    Hello w00t, and welcome to Seven Forums. :)

    After you have downloaded and merged the reg file in step 2, did you right click on a empty space on the desktop and click on Refresh?

    Hope this helps,
    Thank you for reminding to "Refresh", cause it works, but just if you refresh. I also tried without refresh and the Libraries folder icon remained on the desktop, but after refreshing it disappeared (thanks to God - it was so annoying).

    Best regards
