Windows 7: Organize All Files Easily with Libraries By dothy1005
In older versions of Windows, it can be difficult for some users to manage files, documents, pictures and music that are located in different directories on your system.
Windows 7 added a new feature called Libraries, which enables you to organize all types of files from different locations in one area.
How to use Libraries
To access your Libraries, go to Start > Your Username to launch your personal folder.
Go to the left pane and click on Libraries. This will display the four default Libraries namely Pictures, Videos, Music and Documents. Each library will contain files that are saved in different locations on your computer. Additionally, you can create your own library if you need to have more than what is provided initially.
To do this, just go to the left pane and click on the New Libraries button. You can create your own name for this library and then you will be prompted to add new files and folders to it.
This might seem like a small change to the Windows 7’s interface but gets the job done and makes navigating files and folders way easier than ever.
Libraries will enable you to share your files and folders with your Homegroup network easier as well.
