Default Libraries

I'm using Windows 7

I think I've screwed up my Libraries view. For Documents, Videos, Downloads, etc, the path for them all is C:\Users\BigDan\ [that respective folder]

However for Pictures it's C:\Users\Public\Photos

Not sure how this happened. I don't think that was the default so I'm guessing I did something. This isn't recent btw, it's been the case for over a year. But I'd like to fix it.

First, I can't even understand this whole concept of libraries. Why is it when I click on Documents it says Libraries\Documents rather than C:\Users\BigDan\Documents? And secondly, how do I fix the address for Pictures?



You want the best? Here I am

Default Re: Libraries

Libraries is just a shortcut to folder collections.

Right click the Pictures library > Properties > and under 'Library locations:' add your user Pictures folder (you can optionally remove the Public Photos one if you like after you add it).
