Restore Folders and Libraries in Windows 7.

Tuesday, January 12th, 2010

Windows Explorer is another regularly used tool that can be easily customized and often left in a bit of a mess after a few months of use.
There are several restore options for this, specific to different tasks. Via the Organize button go to Folder and Search Options. On each of the General, View and Search tabs you should find a Restore Defaults button which will refresh your original Windows 7 settings for this screen.
Windows 7 features Music, Videos, Pictures and Documents libraries setup as default – these can on occasion go missing but are easily restored by right-clicking on Libraries in the navigation pane (usually found on the left of a Windows Explorer or file browser window) and selecting Restore Default Libraries.
