    I did format and reinstalled window 10 yesterday.

    And created some libraries for my favorite folders already like always do after reinstalled.

    Today, I tried to creat extrea libraries but was not abled to add folders.

    1. creat "new library"
    2. choose "folder"
    3. click "confirm" but nothing happened.

    I've reintalled window tens of times but never happened this far.

    It's strange for me ever. Anyone knows this issues?

    Map a network drive folder to my video library

    To Include folders using Manage Library Tools, we suggest that you perform the steps below:

    • In File Explorer, select or open a library (ex: Videos) you want to include a folder or drive to.
    • Click on the Library Tools Manage tab, and click on the Manage library button in the ribbon.
    • Click on the Add button
    • Browse to and select a folder or drive that you want to include in this library, and click on the Include folder button.
    • When finished, click/tap on OK.
    Keep us updated with the result.

    Picture User Folder vs Library Picture Folder / Add to User folder

    Hi,



    Form the issue description, I realize that you are trying to view your pictures in the default pictures library. To do so, you have to change the location of the folder that contains your pictures to the default pictures library folder.



    To view your pictures in the default pictures library, I suggest you to follow the steps below.




    • Right-click on the default Picture folder
      and click on Properties.

    • Navigate to Location tab.

    • Click on Move…. and select the folder that contains your pictures and click on
      Apply and then click on Ok.


    Hope the information helps. Kindly write back to us for further information on Windows. We will be happy to assist you.



    Thank you.

    Library Folders and Onedrive

    Keith

    I have now done the Location Move on the folders affected

    One change has shown up. Previously even though a Folder location was changed the original folder remained, you suggested deleting it after removing it from the Library. In the past I have left it where it was to allow programs that refer to the Documents
    folder via the UNC path to still have somewhere to drop files.

    However after the move I found the Library now only had one path listed (in OneDrive) and it had been removed from the original location. So the result is as you suggested but I didn't have to do it.

    I know there was an issue with build 1809 deleting files when it removed the folder (there were none in mine anyway) but this computer is build 1803.
