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

    A library's default save location determines which included folder an item will be stored to when you copy, move, or save it to the library.

    A library's public save location determines which included folder an item will be stored to when users or homegroups that you set to share the library with copy, move, or save the item to the library.

    This tutorial will show you how to set a default save location and public save location of a library for your account in Windows 10.

    Set Save Location for Library in Windows 10


    Thanks. One minor thing: it may be worthwhile to add a line that, before proceeding to do anything, users should select any folder or file.

    If Explorer is launched and starts at 'Quick Access' then Library Manager won't show up.
    I, myself, started wondering why on the site Library Tools Manager was displayed whereas it wasn't in my Explorer, until I discovered I should indeed select some 'real folder'.
    (and under 'View->Navigation Pane' - Show Libraries should be tagged)

    Again - minor tip only...
