windows 7You see John? You forced me to write a post about it! 😉 The sad part of it all is that there is not a tutorial  teaching you how to delete, remove or get rid of Libraries in Windows 7. I wish there was one! Anyway what we can do here is to trick and play with these Libraries in order to not bother us too much. Let’s see how.

You can choose to set  your Personal Folder  to display as a menu in Customize Start Menu. To do that follow these steps:

  1. Right click the Start button.
  2. Click the Customize button.
  3. Locate Personal Folder from the menu.
  4. Choose Display as a menu.
  5. Click OK.

I encourage everyone knowing about other ways to hide, delete, remove or get rid of libraries to post their findings here!

    I find Libraries totally annoyhing and I was not able to delete the shortcut, even though I get a window asking me if I want to delete it. These libraries – and other patronizing features of Windows tend to stay with you like cockroaches – you need to take a course just to remove them.
    Please get some thinking people as programmers – it’s very unnerving to be patronized by stupidity.
    Thank you

    I also detest the Libraries in windows 7 and see no earthly use for them. I loved my XP but am not stuck with this cumbersome OS/

    I hate the Libraries folder also & the fact that if you do use it your data gets stored on C drive, that seems plain stupid to me.
    Like others I don’t particularly want to follow a multi step deletion process that involves registry changes, that’s not smart either unless you ghave advanced skills.
    Why does MS do this, who asked for it & after 7 OS iterations why now?
    We need a SW based reversible program but I guess that would involve MS accepting that they made a mistake.
