In past versions of Windows it was tiresom, boring, tedious task managing documents, photos, music and other files that were scattered in different directories in your hard drive. Now, computer repairs pros are happy, because this has all been made better with a few little additions. Let’s have a look at the new *Libraries* feature in Windows 7 that lets you organise folders located in multiple locations into one spot.
To access your Libraries click on Start then your user name to open up your personal folder.
In the left pane click on Libraries to view the four default Libraries which are Videos, Pictures, Documents and Music.
Libraries will show files that are stored in different locations on your computer as in the example below of a Music Library.
You won’t need to limit yourself to just the four default Libraries and you can actually create your own. To achieve this – click on *Libraries*; in the left pane click on the New Libraries button.
A new Library comes up just like a new folder where you can easily label it.
Then whenever you go into your new Library you are prompted to add new folders and files to it.
If you want to add a new folder location to any of the Libraries just click on the hyperlink that shows the current number of locations.
You can then click the Add button to include any other locations on the computer.
Right-click on the Library icon and select *Properties* and you can include a folder from here.
Also, while you’re navigating through explorer you can Right-click a folder to include it in your library.
This might seem like a subtle change to the user interface but you’ll find it effective and it makes navigating files and folders so much easier.
Libraries will allow you to share your folders and files with your Home group network quicker and easier as well.
I hope this help with you computer repairs affairs 🙂
