Using Libraries

Using Libraries

Libraries are a new feature of Windows 7 that allow you to organize your files in one central location, no matter where they are actually located, making it easier to work with them.

Windows 7 provides four default windows, Documents, Music, Pictures, and Video, and you can create your own.

Create a Library

To create a new library:

  1. Select the Start menu button.
  2. Select your user name.
  3. From the navigation pane on the left, select Libraries.
  4. In the Libraries window, select New Library.
  5. Type a name for your new Library.

Add a Folder to a Library

To add a folder with one of the default Libraries or one that you created:

  1. Select the folder you want to add to a Library, and right-click it.
  2. From the menu, select Include in Library.
  3. From the menu, select which Library you want to add the folder to.
  4. The folder will now be included in the Library, as well as still reside where it is located.
