    What is the role of Libraries in explorer and how to set them


    I noticed that the Videos library points to an other computer in my home network. it's O.K but how did it get there.
    And, the RealPlayer downloader saves videos to that directory, so how can i change either of them

    :)

    How to reset the Libraries to the original settings...

    Hi Jordan,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Communities.

    I will be glad to help you with the issue you have with the computer. I understand the frustration when things don't work the way it should.

    Restore default Libraries



    I would suggest you try the restore library option and check if it helps. Please back up all the files in the library before trying this, just to make sure you don’t lose any files. Refer these steps:



    a) Open Windows explorer

    b) In the left panel, locate Library and right click on it

    c) Click “restore default libraries” option

    d) Check if the issue persists.



    Please reply with the results, we will be glad to help you further.

    Thank you.
