windows 7 folderAs you know, Windows 7 libraries let you organize your scattered files such as music, photos, videos etc. in a better way. Basically a library gathers and collects all those similar files in the same place, no matter where they are located. If for any reason, you notice that a folder is located in a library which is not appropriate for its content, then you might decide to delete or remove it. This little trick  will show you how to get rid of a folder located in a library in a few steps.

  1. Click the “My Computer” icon to open the Explorer folder.
  2. On the let pane, click the Libraries icon. This will expand the icon thus showing you all the Libraries available.
  3. Right-click the library  which contains the folder you want to delete.
  4. From the Menu, click the Properties link.
  5. A new, small window will pop-up on the screen.
  6. Click the folder you want to remove in the “Library Locations”  section.
  7. Now, click the Remove button to delete the folder.
  8. Click OK.

    Great little tip: Line 2 has a typo (let instead of left)
