I have a complete set of folders/files in MY Docs under "CGS," the user, which is me. However, the Documents folder under Libraries is empty. How do I go about putting the folders/files in both places? I am a desperate "newbee" with Ws7. I would have no trouble "navigating" in "XP!"
I have attached a screen shot to help clarify to what I am referring.Attached File  My Docs question for TSG, etc..png   40.24KB   2 downloads
Thanks

I am 81 years "young" and enjoying becoming computer "savvy." Need help from sites like this from time to time. Thanks to the folks who provide the assistance to those of us in need.

In the left pane, right-click the Documents Library > Properties > Include a folder

This will allow you to include any folder you wish in your Documents Library.

A Library is not another copy of a file/folder, but a collection of ones you include in that Library. See here.

Note that the Documents Library is different from the regular Documents folder, as you can include anything in the Library but actually have to move/copy something into your Documents for it to show up there.

Thanks for the response and clarification. I am going to leave "libraries" alone for now!
