    Information Libraries gather folders that are stored in different locations so you can browse them in one place. You can add or remove folders and drives to be included in a library as you like.

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Create New Library in Windows 10

    Library folder create new library not working (not available)


    See this: Create New Library in Windows 10
    Pictures will help understand my problem.

    Create new library 3 methods. Only Method 3 works for me.
    1) Explorer Library Folder: right-click -> New -> (Empty) --- Library is missing, actual text displayed is (Empty)
    2) ... on ribbon : New Item --- no drop down --- does nothing. In a normal folder, it does drop down with list of types to create.

    Note: on the left side if you right click on the "Library" - the same (Empty) for option New is displayed (Like Method 1 above)

    Any ideas on how to fix this? I assume a registry entry or 2.. is missing or damaged.

    Thanks.

    Help, cant create windows image

    Use Windows AIK and maybe a little command line action. *Toast :toast:

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee523217(v=ws.10).aspx

    Edit: I should add there's quite a few steps, but there are guides that explain this with less detail to make it easier out there. It takes a little time, but you'll have a good image. Don't worry about cleaning it up if you're happy with it since you aren't creating a deployment image for other workstations.
