Preferred Solution: Library Conundrum: 'Arrange By Folders' is Missing in Custom Library!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Did you create a new library with the same name or a different name? When you go to Libraries, and you right click and select properties on Documents, do the attributes match what you find when you right click and select properties on your new library?

For some reason if I go to the libraries where is has Documents, Music, Pictures and Video I cannot open anything it just says LIBRARY-MS File. I can access the folders if I click on computer, C drive, users etc. I have tried deleting the -MS files right clicking on Libraries and clicking Restore Default Libraries I have also tried making a new user account, adding folder to libraries, even reinstalled Windows 8. Any suggestions?

Did you first set up a Homegroup with the other machines in your network?

I don't believe the Library folders will function unless a Homegroup has been set up.

My Documents library was very well organized, containing many folders. Today I clicked on my Documents library, and discovered that all of my folders HAD DISAPPEARED, and all of the folders' contents are now floating loose in my document's library. I now have over 28,000 different files in my documents library with no organization whatsoever. (Interestingly, I also have a few zipped folders that weren't tampered with.) Also, my computer has been very VERY slow, making some of my programs unusable. (Microsoft Word, in particular). My McAfee virus software is running and up to date. Also, when I click on my documents folder through my C drive instead of going through my documents library, my folders are all intact the way they are supposed to be. I have NEVER seen anything like this before. Ever seen this before? Can it be fixed?

I used a software and extended my disk C the other day and apparently some settings are set back to default or somehow changed. It's been so long since my computer had any problems so I can't remember how to customize everything anymore...
So I use to have the pictures library to be arranged by month and I remember that the folders are grouped by year also. Like at the top it shows the year and then the pictures are arranged by month. Now it's set to "arrange by month" too but the years are not shown. Does anyone know how I can get the old look back? Thanks!

A:Pictures Library arrange by month looks weird

Hello Rose,

I think this may get you back there. If not, then play with the different settings to see if another may be it.
Set View -> Arrange by to Folder
Set View -> Group by to (None) if available
Now, set View -> Arrange by to Month.

Now, set View -> Arrange by to Day.

I'm using the 'Arrange By' selection box in the Pictures Library. When I use the 'Arrange By' selection to arrange my pictures by date (in descending order) I get about 2 years of pictures grouped by day and the remainder by month. Arranging 'by month' does not work at all. This happens for all the folders I have in the Pictures library. Has anybody a suggestion on why this is teh case? Thanks for your help.

A:Pictures Library Arrange By Date gives results by Day and by Month

Make sure that under the pictures folder (c\users\ your username \pictures) properties, under customize make sure the folder is optimized for pictures.

Also right click some of your pictures and make sure the data and time stamp is correct. Meta data could be wrong messing everything up. Right click picture-properties-details.

The Picture It! Library and Digital Image Library do not display temporary files. By ignoring temporary files, the Library can remain clean and uncluttered. An issue has been identified where some software marks photos as temporary files when they are acquired from the camera. This patch enables the Library to view these temporary files.

The software currently known to mark new files as temporary is Canon Utilities ZoomBrowser version

Hi all,

I've been trying to find a way to add my own icons to libraries that I make. I have tried navigating to:

And after right clicking the Library I made, I don't get an option to change the icon. Is there any way to do this? It would just be easier to tell the difference between user-created libraries if the icons could be changed, instead of only using the one default icon provided.

I've tried searching through the tutorials section, and looked through the first five pages or so of results that came up from a search here on the forums, and haven't been able to find the info I'm looking for.

Thanks for any help!

You can't add custom folders to the right side of the start menu, only the left side.

You can however set your User folder to open as a menu instead of a link and it will expand out and you can get to your custom folder that way. One extra step but that's about alll you can do.

It might be that the file is hidden and windows cannot see it. Go to My Computer, then Tools > Folder Options > View > select shown hidden files and folders.

Also it could be that it's not using the DDF file anymore and using a different one. Maybe M4U or something similar.

My libraries file, Documents, Music, Pictures, Videos had developed a problem.

When I click on Pictures, the picture folders appear, but immediately below, my document files appear as folders also.

If I delete a document file in the pictures file, the document also deletes in the documents file.

If I try to move the document file from the picture file to the document file, a window says its an Identical sub folder and won't go any further.

How can I remove the folder list of documents from the picture file without destroying those documents in the document file?

I think that this problem developed as I loaded an ArcSoft program to read slides into my computer.

First turn off Monitor Folders and leave WMP open in the library view. To add songs to the library, select the music file folder(s) in Windows Explorer then drag-and-drop them into the WMP window.

If that doesn't work, delete the WMP database and try again.

I reinstalled Windows 7 - 64 bits on my husbands computer and ran MS updates that I had downloaded on a DVD. Now I wanted to install IE 11, but I receive a message that some MS updates are needed before install IE 11. I ran ALL the updates, only not Silverlight and .NET Framework. Do I need any of them for IE 11 to install?
Also, I partitioned the HD (drive C for Windows and drive D for data). I remember that on Windows XP I was able to move the library (documents, pictures, etc) folder to drive D, so when I needed to restore the backup of the Windows partition, the data were not lost. How can I do the same with Windows 7?
Thank you for any advice.

In Vista, files can be shown first, which I prefer since I can see my most recent music files. So my question is... is it possible to change this, to display files and then folders (as in Vista)?
Thanks in advance.

Update: it happens in all the libraries, not only in the music one. However in the computer explorer it doesn't, I mean, files appear in the first place.

Hello all I'm experiencing a strange problem with tripple library folders When I first installed windows I deleted all default library folders and created custom ones all was fine Some point later I decided to create a new library named quot Music quot the same as one of the defaults That's when things started going screwy At first everything appeared normal I had a new folder called quot Music quot in my library and I proceeded to include folders in it After I rebooted though now I can reproduce this just by refreshing the explorer window I noticed that I had quot Music quot folders in my library One had the default library icon the other a music-specific icon I proceeded Weird problem library with folders tripple to troubleshoot Weird problem with tripple library folders the problem Deleting either folder resulted in deleting both Adding a new quot Music quot custom library added both again Restoring the default libraries restored two copies of Music I checked in appdata roaming ms windows libraries and saw that there was only one music library-ms file I then tried creating a new custom library including all files I wanted deleting the music library and then renaming the newly created on to music This resulted in having library files - - I've been googleing but its hard to filter through the results since most are about having double the physical files inside a library folder Any help would be greatly appreciated

 If you have any remaining data you don't want to lose, back it up, then restore to factory settings using the instructions in your user guide.
 When you've gotten your system back like you want it, I urge you to get yourself an external hard drive and a good 3rd party backup program. You can set it up to do everything automagically at the time and frequency of your choice. 1 TB external hard drives are about $60 these days and a really good FREE backup program is the Easeus Todo Backup Free.  That can save you a lot of time and frustration the next time something like this happens. Sooner or later it happens to all computers for one reason or another.
 Good luck.

Also is there a way to export a library? Just the locations it refers to not the actual files themselves? Make it easier setting up pc again in future. kinda like you can copy a bunch of shortcuts to software you might instal later then past them where you want but do this for library.

Always double-click the horizontal header bar of each Location before closing the window. This is the only way I know of to do this. After a while, it will become so automatic that you won't even have to think about it.

You are probably way out of my league in this being a professional IT man and I hope I am not giving stupid ideas, I just hate to see not even a reply to try to help you out yet. Which must mean you are definitely "S-O-L" as you are treading uncharted waters.
Is the registry key still set at "Gallery"? If you run a program like "Registry Mechanic" or whatever on a scheduled basis, could it see that as a registry error and reset the key? Or if you had to do a Windows repair/reinstall, does that change all keys back to their default?
If you have a server computer hosting the movies, did you go into explorer to see if her computer still even has proper permissions to access the movie directory? Maybe if WMC doesn't find anything to display under that heading, it won't even show the heading.
As far as the setup option missing goes, could that be a part of Windows Security that doesn't show do to account/access permissions. If you temporarily make her account an administrator, then restart, does it show up? Or even easier, If does it show up when logged in as a current administrator.
Do you have another computer running a similar setup that works to compare the registries with for any other changes? If this seem like it might help you and you don't have another computer, I will post screen shots of my registry for you.
If nothing else and it seems like your alone in this, maybe it would be quicker to back up her system and then restore a backup that is functional and migrate her recent files over from the newest backup.
Please do share when you get this figured out. I have a WHS computer hosting Media Center PC's so I may run into a very similar problem in the future.

Have tried to find something that would fix this problem (not having it myself), but have run into that thing we call a "Wall." Really not sure what it would take at this point.

Something you might do is to run a Malware program to determine if that could be the problem. Or, go to "System Restore" then go back to point that this problem didn't exist, and restore to that point to see if that will fix the problem (remember if you use System Restore you may have to reinstall some of your apps).

A:Problem moving folders from external drives to a Windows 7 library

Hello bmanning, and welcome to Seven Forums.

As a test, see if you will be able to drag them to your desktop first, then move them to where you like afterwards. Windows 7 has built-in security that prevents anything from being copied from an external source directly into a system folder. It has to be to a user folder (ex: desktop) first, then from the user folder to a system location.

Hope this helps,

Not being that experienced, I'm a little confused w/ the way the Library sorts CDs into genres vs the way I could sort the Music Folders. They don't seem to relate. For example, the Library lists an album under "Rock" that I would like to move to another genre but I cannot figure a way to do this. On the other hand, I know I could play around w/ the folders so that this particular CD is in the right place. However, I'm not sure that if I take the time to organize my Music folders whether this will have any impact on how the Library sorts them.
If you can shed some light on this I'd sure appreciate it.
Thanks, Nick.

A:Solved: Windows media music library vs music folders

Mp3 music files have tags that are kept inside the files themselves. The most common ones are Artist, Album, Track Title, Track Number, Release Year and Genre. When you put a file into the WMP library, the tags are read and stored, along with the file location.

So the tag data is what shows up in the WMP library and you can sort on various fields depending on which version you have. But the files can be put anywhere and named anyway you like. Most people use a certain naming convention like Artist-TrackNumber-Title.

If you want to sort the folders by genre you could do that, but you'll have to do it manually. You can do some manipulating of folders and filenames with tag editors. If you want to give that a try get Mp3Tag.

I have numerous situations where I have many folders inside a fold..

Recently I clicked something on one of these and now the items show as shown below:

As you can see the internal folders are arranged across the screen with NO details.

The way I want it to show is shown below:

How do I change the way it is shown in the first arrangement to the way it is shown in the second arrangement?

Thank you.

I have many folders/subfolders in my PFC. Is there a way to sort or arrange these folders in the order I want them in. I've tried dragging them but many times they simply pop back to where they were.

I don't want the library there on my desktop. I don't want it there anywhere. I like all my folders laid out in plain sight on the desktop, not shelved on some library shelf.


A:How to get rid of the library?

Hello Kahill, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Libraries let you access and arrange items from one or more folders quickly without moving them from their original location. Libraries themselves don't store your files or folders. Instead, they point to different locations on a hard disk or external drive attached to your computer. This gives you easy access to a category of files no matter where they are stored. For instance, if you have music files on your hard disk and on an external drive, you can access all of your music files from within the "Music" library.

If you are still set on removing them, then this will help show you how to with an easy option to restore them later if you should decide to.

Does anyone know where I can get a good .zip manipulation library? I just need to be able to create a .zip and add files to it, not unzip it. Any help will be appreciated.

Q: Library


Someone was on my laptop today, and I noticed they had a window opened called Library. It looked like a list of files or something. I would like to know what this is, just to make sure nothing related to the operating system can be corrupted by using this program. Also, how can I access it myself? Thank you.

I am using Vista Home Premium on an Acer Aspire 5920.


HiI noticed they had a window opened called Library. It looked like a list of files or something.There's no program in Vista called Library unless of course you have installed one.There is however a program in Windows to view files and folders. The program is called Windows Explorer.Follow this link to see how to use this program. would like to know what this is, just to make sure nothing related to the operating system can be corrupted by using this program.It is possible to delete files and folders using Windows Explorer. If you are already aware of Windows Explorer and it is not the program you saw then please try to supply further info about this mystery program which will help in its identification.

Q: Library

Hi everyone, I am not sure if this is the best section to post it in, but its my first time posting on here...

I have never seen this happen before and I would like to know how to fix it.

When you go into your Libraries folder you will see "Documents, Music, Pictures, and Videos"

When I click "Pictures" I see my pictures folder which is what I only want in there..
But I see 4 categories along with it as drop down menus.

They are "Public Pictures" "My Documents" and "Public Documents" I don't know how those even got there, but I was wondering how to get rid of them..

Any help is greatly appreciated,

Thank you!

Edit: Nevermind... Solved my own problem..

Trying to burn a CD, when I click on Library- nothing happens, no folders, no dropdowns, nothing. I've researched the forums and no similar problems found. It will play music but I can't burn any CDs because I can't access the Library that I'm supposed to put my song files into. Thanks in advance for any and all help.

As can be seen from my snip, my folders are not in alphabetical order. Is there a way to do this? I can arrange the files in the folders that way, but they don't time I go back they're in random order again. On my Vista desktop, I can arrange both folders and files in ABC order and they stay that way. Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Hi, I've been looking for a solution to my problem online and can't seem to find it so I thought I'd post something here.

I have Windows 7 and whenever I open a folder it arranges by order of last accessed. This is a pain because I'm constantly having to re-sort my folders alphabetically so that I can find them. Is there any way I can make my folders always arranged alphabetically?

I've tried the Folder Options>View>Apply to Folders but it doesn't seem to work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!


A:How do I arrange all folders to always be organized alphabetically?

Hello RB, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You should be able to click on the Name column while in Details view to have the arrow pointing upwards in the Name column to have them Sort by "ascending" alphabetical order.

File and Folder Arrangement - Group by - Sort by - Arrange by

If you like, you can then use the method in the tutorial below to apply this to all folders. They should be by default though.

Folder View - Set a Default for All Folders

How can I arrange jpgs within a folder without renaming them FIRST? XP allowed drag and drop to allow MY OWN organization. Windows 7 seems to have replaced that with only auto-arrange options. Am I missing something or is there still some way to organize a slideshow or content-based order?

A:How to PERMANENTLY Arrange Folders by Name? Is there a registry solution?

Open Windows Explorer, go to your folder, then sort them the way you want.
Then go to "Tools, Folder Options, View tab", and then select the "Apply to Folder" button.
OK out of Folder Options, and then close Explorer. Now, when you open Explorer or from a program the files should be sorted in the manner you set them at.

Each time you start a new session, the programs will default to My Documents.
