add libraries 00 Windows 7: Add Libraries [How To]

Libraries are introduced with Windows 7; these libraries are special folders with special views. They are “special” because each library is an aggregate of many different folders. The default libraries include pictures, videos, music, and a few others. The data in these folders is a mix of personal files and publicly shared files on the computer/network. In this guide, you’ll learn how to add more libraries to the default selection.
